    1and1 is cheap, and I'm pretty sure reliable. Harder to get rid of them though?

    I think HostGator is cheaper but I don't know for sure.

    I don't want to spend extra money on Lunar Pages or anything over $25 for hosting, that is ridiculous pricing for basic hosting, however good it may be.

    I'm going to be making a small blog/autoblog and plan to purchase an xrumer blast from someone on the forum.

    Which host should I get? How much traffic do you think I will get from 100k blast.

    Also, should I have Adbrite on my page if I do a blast, or will I get banned. etc...

    I will additionally be having amazon affiliation products on my page, will blasting effect anything? Banning? ....

    Thanks for your advice and help.

    Well, I'd stick with hostgator for unlimited domains as the support is good. 1and1 gets their support from India and it was a nightmare. I got lucky and had my money refunded before it was too late. Google complaints for 1and1 and grab a softdrink and start reading. Head for the hills in other words, don't go there...

    Ok thanks for your advice. I've had bad experiences with 1and1 in the past, which is why I said so in the original post.

    I could not cancel my subscription for the love of me. haha

    Use hostgator.. just got a dedi with them, and support blows 1and1 out of the water!

    1and1 sucks, stay far away from them! I was with them for about a year!

    Yeah, avoid 1and1 like the plague regardless of what you plan on hosting with them.

    I mean if we use share or reseller gosting plan with hostgator, will they banned the account if we install too many autoblog? I see that some member here is offer their share or reseller hosting that can be use for autoblog with no problem like hostgator.

    The member here only charge like $50/year for reseller hosting account and i think is great. Any idea. Thanks

    Given the choices, I'd choose almost any host over 1and1, but Hostgator is the easiest to deal with, has great support, and is a very decent price to build upon.

    I suggest Hostgator or bluehost as well, been with them for years never had a problem, keep in mind they are shared hosting so don't put tons of auto blogs in one account.. 1and1 cheap but sucks, they have bad servers and support.

    PS: if any one of you guys is going to order with Hostgator or some others PM me first I have a great deal for you ;) .

    Damn, I should have used that coupon code because I ended up regging my first autoblog domain with namecheap and my hosting Baby plan with HostGator.

    Anyways, I'll make a thread eventually about how my blog is doing and tips etc.

    Hostgator anytime. I suggest that you buy reseller, had different cpanels for all, so that you can track individual websites.

    For Hostgator shared hosting, if you use more than 50,000 iNodes, you account will be suspended. So if you are thinking of hosting too many autoblogs, go for reseller hosting.

    How many autoblogs are you thinking of developing?

    1and1 sucks donkey balls.. forget about their customer service- their dashboard is simply retarded. also, their bottom of the line hosting plans include next to nothing.

    Never used hostgator, but it seems to be well liked here. I use dreamhost, but only have about 20 autoblogs. Their one click install for wordpress is really nice.

    Hostgator support is crap, they might answer fairly quickly but usually with the wrong answer...

    Dreamhost.com support has been really good for me so far & they have a regular offer of $9 for a years worth of hosting BUT some people are complaining they are getting banned fairly quickly once they get traffic.

    Two minutes after reading this thread i got an email from hostgator
    I installed wp-super-cache and the enabled it again, so now i have about 20-25
    autoblogs on that account and i'm thinking of installing wp-super-cache on all of them.

    but other then that i have no complaints.
