    One of my web hosts is 3ix. Just today I found I had 0 visitors when I checked my adsense reports and when I checked the site it was suspended. I had received no emails from them about the suspension. They just blocked my 3 sites there. I went online with their live helpdesk and he unblocked my a/c w/o saying anything. When I asked why it was blocked in the first place he said my sites causing CPU spikes on their server. He said they'll do it again if my sites cause their lousy cpu to spike again. I told him thank you I'll move my sites.

    My other host at Blue Voda doesn't give me this kind of shit when though I have more autoblog sites there than at 3ix.
    I'll be moving my 3 sites from 3ix to Blue Host to spread my ip still.

    I heard nothing but bad things about ths company. + I wouldnt touch anything that requires 3 months minimum of pre-paid hosting especially when dealing with blackhat stuff.

    Hostgator is great for autoblogging. Had no trouble with them at all, although you have to make sure you aren't running too much cron jobs and taking up too much server resources. They will suspend you if that happens (most shared hosts will).

    Hosts can remove anything they like if they feel there tos has been breached, especially bh shit.

    Why not have another host sitting ready to go with your site. Don't put all your eggs in one facist hosting company.

    I'm running 4 autoblogs on Blue Voda and they haven't pissed on me yet. Service, while not polite English, still resolve my problems.

    do a search on dreamhost and see what comes up.
    both lunar pages and gator are poor choices for hosting.

    heh! i'd never recommend any host. one that i'd like to move to is ace-net but they don't
    permit any adult content, and i plan on doing some advertising for adult services.

    i'm at gator, but i plan on moving since i don't trust them. they suspended my account
    because they didn't know what a file beamer is. plus my scripts are running super slowly for some reason -- 30 seconds for a page to load?!?

    actually nobody lets you mod to 777 anymore, as it's a huge security risk.

    Really? I found their customer support oustanding. I'd do tickets that are answered in 10 minutes, guess it's different to other people I suppose?

    I had a very bad experience with Hostgator. One day my site was acting weird. Some stuff wasn't loading. I first thought that the database was corrupted. After long time I found out that they chmod 000 two of my scripts for taking too much cpu. They didn't notify me at all and I only found out about this a few days after they did it.

    Hey guys!
    What is your opinion about servage? I just got a hosting with them and everything is so smooth atm. But I kinda fear that they wont let me to use certain amount of cron jobs for that price.
    I miss my dedicated sever at techiemedia but i just can't afford it anymore.

    One thing I noticed in reading the thread is you all are talking about shared hosting. Has anyone used a VPS server for their autoblogs? Also, I have heard from a reliable source at IMPROTOOLS.com that lunar pages are what he uses. I find it interesting the back and forth with hostgator especially. I have heard they will ban you at the drop of a hat.
