    Hi everyone, I have been making and selling AB's for a little while now and want to know wether hosting them on my reseller account is a good idea or not.

    I don't actually keep any AB's so I don't know what kind of bandwidth/disk space or cpu they use and if they will cause a problem or not.

    I have a hostgator reseller account with 50gb disk space and 500gb bandwidth

    can someone give me examples of how much resources an established AB takes

    How would i know if there was a problem say with cpu overloading - would hostgator be contacting me telling me to sort it out or is it up to me to monitor

    If you were to allocate your reseller accounts how big would you make them and how many would i fit on the hosting i mentioned

    Can you throttle each account seperately or does it affect the whole reseller account

    Is it worth the hassle?

    Really would appreciate some feedback guys thanks

    Hi I can tell you this. I had 26 autoblogs on a shared server hosting package, and got my account suspended because I was using 90% of the server. It was a combination of some plugins that use lots of resources and a decent amount of traffic.

    I am thinking of moving to another host and build my auto blogs a little different to save resources. I'd be interested to hear a little about your expirence with selling autoblogs. If you'd care to share pm me.

    Thanks. Sounds like a bit of a mare - not so bad if you are in control but if you are not then it could mean trouble. I take it that was on shared hosting. Mine is a reseller account and so im wundering what the difference is. Would they come after me as the reseller owner or what?

    No great secret with making the AB's just got a WP Robot developers lisence and sell wherever i can really. The hosting is only $24.00 p/m so was thinking about offering it as a bonus

    I use hostgator shared with wprobot and havent had much trouble with cpu usage. I had one autoblog go a little nuts on me one time but they actually installed supercache on it and apparently that solved the problem.

    so when you sell you ABs, you include hosting with it as well? pretty clever.

    Well I'm just thInking about it - don't want to enter a world of pain! I am totally new to reselling and don't really understand who is responsible for certain things. I.e. If one person decided to post 100 articles a day or something stupid, would hostgator come knocking on my door or his. Am I responsible for all my accounts that I sell - I know I am for customer support and that?
