    I want to open some several blogs, just Wordpress.
    For this i need a hoster. After long time of research I decided to pick one out of these:

    Hostgator - Baby Plan:
    h**p://w*w.hostgator.c*m/shared.shtml

    Bluehost:
    h**ps://w*w.bluehost.c*m/

    Hosteurope:
    h**p://w*w.hosteurope.c*m/


    Which one out of these would you prefer? Maybe someone is hosting there and could tell me his/her experience?

    I will buy the domains on namecheap.com - many told me they offer good service and the price is also good.

    Wish you a nice day...

    Best regards

    Until i've setup some testblogs and it works brilliant.
    Have to say the whole server thing is relatively new for me, but with Hostgator no problem so far :)

    It's not necessarily that Godaddy's infrastructure sucks or they have "tons of downtime", its just their servers are generally stuffed to the brim with accounts, and they give you very very very very very limited control and resources over your account, if you taking it seriously at all I would advise going with a host thats going to give you the control you need.

    Most of shared hosting does not allow clients to build autoblog.
    So, I would suggest you to buy a vps.

    I would have to disagree with you,

    I know that many shared hosts actually allow autoblogs you have to find the right host ;)

    I personally have tons of clients on my business plans running 10+ auto blogs with no issues at all

    if you are building autoblogs you should build them on dedicated IP's or google wont rank them too well. Sometimes when using shared hosting your IP neighbors do stupid stuff and you dont want to bear all the crap.

    I'd rater recommend picking up reseller hosting with multiple IP's.... IP neighborhood can be a big problem when ranking autoblogs.

    Alternatively as a start you can also consider setting up autoblogs on free blogging platforms like blogger, wordpress.com etc. The investment would be almost 0 if you use those.

    what if the .co.uk domain is not availlable and im trying to outrank a competitor. would the domain being hosted in the uk itself help?

    It would possibly help in the .uk search results, assuming your targeting a UK keyword
