    Nice, 100 MySQL databases – I really like that. InMotion Hosting only gives me 2 🙁 Anyways, good article. I’ve also considered getting an account with AWS (free for one year to new subscribers and then they charge according to what you use) but can’t really justify it.

    Thanks for sharing that. I came here because one of my posts was automatically associated to your article.

    It is interesting to hear this about BlueHost. I had considered moving to it. It seemed that it and HostGator were the best two that people had experience with. Do you plan to link to more reviews of self-hosted WordPress hosts?

      At this juncture I don’t plan on reviewing any others – unless I try others…which I may do, but it’ll be a process over time. Bluehost continues to be fine for single or several sites, it just appears to be an issue when you start running a lot of sites off a single account.

      Phillip – I’ve never used Servage, so I’m not able to comment on their performance compared to Bluehost. Do you have all seven of your sites in the same account at Servage? Are they all MySQL back-end sites and do they have caching (e.g. generate static pages instead of going to db for each request)? I’m currently looking into a few “cloud hosts” which offer pay-as-you-grow additional capacity…but haven’t found one to settle on yet…I’ve also used Slicehost in the past and been very happy with their services – but there you are looking at a real VPS – which means you have to do a lot more of the setup work to get everything installed and configured.
