How many domains is too many on an IP?

I launched a client on GoDaddy hosting today, and while I was nosing around in his WordPress admin site I noticed how very sl-l-o-o-w it was. I did a little research on GoDaddy and found that that’s pretty much the consensus.

One writer mentioned a reverse IP lookup tool that tells you how many domains are on any given IP address. I checked my client’s name and found over 3,500 other domains are hosted there. Then I checked my own host server and there are 1,900.

I don’t know what’s considered too many, but I suspect that GoDaddy might be being slowed down by sheer numbers here.
