    Lately I been running into the issue of having several of my hosts suspend my account.

    I reason is always the same ... your blogs use to much of our resources


    Basically all i do is throw up five-ten autoblogs on the host, have them each pull a video from youtube every hour and post it, then use a plugin to post to twitter.

    due to WPMU not being compatible with the plugin i use to pull videos i have a complete wordpress install for each blog.

    any advice would be appreciated.

    Get a VPS or a dedicated server.
    So you will use your own bandwith and not a shared one.
    They cut your bandwidth or suspend you to keep the other customer's websites alive.

    If you can manage your own server you can get a slice (vps) at places like linode and others for 20 bucks a month.

    - cache (if you're using w3 cache, there's some stupid double negative wording on preview mode that can mess things up)
    - check error log - if it's getting big, something's busted with your sites. It will also tell you where errors are happening
    - minimize processes & plugins that write to the DB heavily
    - optimize tables in db, remove tables from old plugins that are no longer in use
    - remove plugins that are resource hogs
    - ask your host if there's anything they recommend
    - stagger posting times so they're not all posting at once
    - shitty themes can chew up resources

    a vps will generally run smoother than shared hosting, but if your sites are busted then you'll end up just chewing up resources on your vps.

    you shouldn't need a vps for 5-10 autoblogs posting once an hour each. Unless you're already getting a ton of hits, IMHO a regular shared account on most of the bigger players should be manageable for the resources you're using without getting the account suspended. Worst case split the set of accounts in two and run 2 separate shared accounts. VPS will be a faster pipe and perform better but if your problem is that your car has a flat tire, changing the oil won't help much.

    Fetching video on youtube every hour is just crazy. No wonder the hosting get your account suspended. Try reduce it a bit more, maybe twice a day or even once a day.

    10 Autoblogs and each will fetch Videos on Auto after 1 Hour is just crazy and I think every Shared Hosting Company will suspend your account.
    Reduce the amount of Fetching make it 2 or 3 at max per day in a way that not all blog fetch at one time .. or get a VPS
