server load

Hi everyone, could someone please advice, I got an elgg site hosted on arvixe, and I am having server load problems. my elgg site has nearly 200 users, but I am expecting more users. My hosting with arvixe is the ""personal class"". Should I consider upgrading the hosting plan ? or is it something else ?

 

Thanks in advance for your replies
