There is a singularity at x = 1 and your expression isn't real
for -1 < x < 1. If you want to see more of the plot for x>1 add
specify the plot range to be greater. And if you only want to
see the plot for graph for x>1, set the range for x to start at
1. That is

Plot[( (2x+1) Sqrt[x+1] ) / Sqrt[x-1] ,{x,0,5}, PlotRange->{0,100}]

will only show the graph for x>1 and show more of that portion
of the graph.
