Default Yeast Starter Overflow

I made a yeast starter for the first time and its overflowing pretty good right now, is there anyway I can stop this before it gets worse?

I was reading that I could split the starter in half by putting it another vessel, would this be recommended? Or should I just let it continue doing what its doing?

I think you'd be fine putting it in a bigger vessel or splitting it. Otherwise just let it overflow in a sanitized bucket/sink/whatever.
