    I'm thinking of starting up a few autoblogs just to see what the hype is all about. Just wondering if Dreamhost would mind like 10 or so or not.

    I have an account there (their one year for $10 promo :D ) with 6 or 7 autoblogs and no problem thus far. All depends on how many ressources you use I guess...

    The problem with Dreamhost - and it's never really got much better - is that their MySQL servers really suck. By comparison Hostgator absolutely flies and is the same price for shared servers. No competition really.

    you can go with maybe 10 autoblogs updated once per day, but when they see you got some traffic, they ask you for money.
    i don't recommend them.

    I've got 40 set up with no problem, but I did upgrade my account to a private virtual server. I pay about 50$ a month, but it's now much more reliable and if I need to use more resources I just slide a bar for more memory or mysql.

    I believe so, because over the course of two months, their hosting rates were 600,000 and now it jumped to 850,000 after their 777 promo code deal.
