    Just wondering how many autoblogs people are managing getting away with on their server.

    I've had 17 going just fine on a shared host.

    Now I've upped to 60 between 2 hosts (30 on each) and am getting a bit paranoid.

    Anyone got 30 running successfully on 1 hosting?

    Is it true that Hostgator is worse than Lunarpages for lots of autoblogs?

    you can run quite a lot of blogs even on shared hosting . Depends on what wordpress plugins you are using , how big your autoblogs are, hows you mysql database optimized and many other factors

    Thanks guys, you've set my mind at rest a little.

    I'm not worried about the server, because it's more than adequate. I just don't want big Daddy thinking that I'm growing a blog farm.

    QUESTION: going out to those with 30+ sites on a single hosting...

    How many times are you updating per day?

    i am running 5 autoblogs on hostgator (shared) and i don't have any problem yet but my autoblogs are just 2 weeks old so things may change in a couple of months

    anyone else tried hostgator (shared) for their autoblogs?

    It all depends how much traffic you get...updating content is not that hard for shared host, the bots & spiders, as well as regular traffic, this is what kills autoblog servers...

    I had a problem with another host, got booted with 26 blogs.

    Moved to another host, this time I am using w 3 total cache plugin, and I optimize my DB's once or twice a week.
