This is Beaucarnea recurvata, common name Ponytail Palm. Although they will grow happily in the same pot for years, and quite like being a bit rootbound, now that the roots are try to escape looking for more space, its probably time to pot up into something larger, or wider at least. Not much wider, but large enough to accommodate those straying roots,so maybe one size up. Repotting of these is only done when its essential, and it looks as if it is, bit more info on this plant and being rootbound here
