    Hi,

    I need to know how many auto blogs should be hosted on a shared hosting account at h*stga*tor (baby plan) ?

    what should be the maximum limit for them to run smoothly? since these will be new blogs, so they won't be getting much traffic any way, so traffic is not an issue here.

    thanks

    Happy New Year

    I'm running around 10 blogs with over 200k total visitors per month on baby plan without any problems, although I'll upgrade to reseller very soon.

    The number of blogs to host on a shared account depends on some factors:

    1. The web hosting company
    2. The number of accounts allocated to the server sharing those different hosting accounts including yours
    3. The type of websites hosted by other people sharing the same server with you

    These are factors are outside your control. If you are unfortunate to share the same server with people that have differrnt autoblogs, they will consume more resources than your websites and the web hosting company may be forced to limit resources to everybody, including you that is not even using much server resources. That is why you find out that your website may be very slow in loading, not responding to Google bots for crawling, etc. That is why getting a VPN or reseller account is better.

    It's not just your blogs you have to be concerned about in a shared environment. It's more a matter of monitoring performance and then either complaining or upgrading.
