      I have about 10 sites up now on my 6.95/month account. They are great to work with. I have heard some complaints from high traffic sites though. Sent from

        Saw your note about Bluehost and had some questions. I went to their
        website and was confused.

        What does "unlimited domain hosting" mean? Surely I can't throw 20
        different websites up there for six bucks a month?

        They say, "Regularly $6.95 per month, now just $5.95." Is that for a short
        time, or a permanent discount?

        Thanks!

        Dan, Actually that s pretty close to accurate as far as I can tell. I have one account at blue host and I have the following sites up under a single account:

          Dan,

          Actually that's pretty close to accurate as far as I can tell.

          I have one account at blue host and I have the following sites up under a
          single account:
          www.doityourselfcitizen.com
          service.doityourselfcitizen.com
          www.taprootmedia.com
          festivals.taprootmedia.com

          Now, the price just includes hosting. You have to register and pay for the
          domain name yourself. (You can register with bluehost or some other provider
          like Network Solutions.)

          It's a little confusing on how to set it up. When you sign up for an initial
          account, you have to tell them the domain name to associate with the
          account. And then later you can create subdomians within the domain. And you
          can "add on" other domains to the account. So for me, when I registered
          with blue host. I associated doityourselfcitizen.com with the account (I had
          previously bought this name through google last year.) As part of the sign
          up process I created www.doityourselfcitizen.com. Basically this configured
          the servers to associate www.doityourselfcitizenc.com with a directory on
          the server. Once that is done you can install html pages in the directory or
          you can install applications. I installed wordpress into that directory and
          then built my site using wordpress.

          Later, I went into the configuration panel and created the subdomains and
          added on the second domain. But "creating" in this case just means telling
          the bluehost server "when you see a request for
          service.doityourseflcitizen.com, use directory X. When you see a request for
          festivals.taprootmedia.com, use directory y. It's up to you to install the
          files and apps in the directories. Also, you have to go in and configure the
          DNS records to point those names to the IP address of the server you have
          been assigned by bluehost. This involves logging into the company you used
          to register the name and configuring the "A" record for the subdomain you
          are creating. If you register the domain name through blue host, this part
          might be automated.

          So far, I have not found any "gotchas." It's very confusing at first, but
          once you get the hang of it, it's easy and quick to add extra subdomains and
          addon additional domains to your account.

          However, as I said in my original post to the podcasters groups, where you
          can run into trouble is of your site gets too popular. If thousands of
          people start downloading 50Mb files from your bluehost account, it will
          consume too much CPU on the server you have been assigned and in theory,
          they could tell you to stop serving up those files or terminate your
          contract all together. That's why it's preferable to host your actual
          podcast files on libsyn and host the web site on someplace like bluehost.

          That's in theory at least. I suspect that MOST people's podcast is not so
          popular that it would ever cause trouble on the bluehost servers. But I like
          to be an optimist and plan on being super successful. So that's why I'm
          going to host my new podcast (for the do it yourself citizen) on libsyn. :)

            I have been using Bluehost for about 5 years, and I really like their service. They have a good mix of features, and I have very little downtime (hey, computers break, and they break at every hosting service, don't let them tell you otherwise).

            You have to manage your expectations a little. You wouldn't be hosting the New York Times site, or NPR.org there. If you are doing that kind of traffic, you would need more than a $6.95 / month account, but again, that would apply to anywhere you went. There is no magic wand to wave and get boatloads of free stuff for... free. I have known a few people who were unhappy with BH, but mostly because for $6.95 a month, they expected the world. They moved to another host, had the same issues (overwhelming expectations), and were just as unhappy.

            BUT... I host 8 sites under one hosting account with them, and have been EXTREMELY happy. The first domain is free, and other domains after that cost $10 / year (standard stuff). A human being picks up the phone when you call (I believe they are in Utah), and I get very good service, better than most any company out there.

            Hope that helps.

            The way they price it is based on 1 or 2 years prepaid hosting. At my last renewal it was 6.95 for 1 year prepaid hosting or 5.95 for 2 years prepaid hosting.

Getting the podcast on iTunes xorrectly has been a hassle so that makes me nervous about switching. Did you host yr podcasts on the Bligh youbswitched over? My blog is only 2 months old so I'm torn between wanting to leave it for now and knowing the more I use it the more I tweak it. I'd like to have more ways to organize though...

                      I'm not sure about widgets, the client sites I have switched over were pretty boring, hence hiring a web designer. I would imagine that any widgets you have can be re created.

                      It will transfer posts and comments very easily.

                      which feed did you submit to itunes, feedburner or blogger?

                      Oh thank you that is good to know. What is the tool? Will my widgets abs things go too? The blog is newyorkirisharts.blogspot.com. Getting the podcast on iTunes xorrectly has been a hassle so that makes me nervous about switching. Did you host yr podcasts on the Bligh youbswitched over? My blog is only 2 months old so I'm torn between wanting to leave it for now and knowing the more I use it the more I tweak it. I'd like to have more ways to organize though...

                      The short answer is no, you can pretty much assume that your widgets are blogger specific, and will not automatically transfer. That said, there doesn t look

                        The short answer is no, you can pretty much assume that your widgets are blogger specific, and will not automatically transfer. That said, there doesn't look like anything that can not be recreated easily in WordPress. Widgets are usually system specific, no matter what system you use. But there doesn't seem to be anything to complex, so it should be easy enough.

                            That I don't know. If they are linked to from places like flickr and youtube, yes. If not, it depends on how deep the transfer goes. I haven't done that big a transfer, so I'm not sure. When I moved from Blogger to WordPress, I was using Flickr for my photos (no more, though), and so everything was linked to, rather than uploaded.

                            I can say this: if you are eventually going to do it, the sooner you do it, the better. Less stuff to move, less people to redirect to your new site, etc. If you are happy on Blogger, by all means, do what makes you happy. I you need to move, do it. No reason not to.

                                            I'm here to tell you though that while they mean well they are not the most efficient people. One team will fix it and then another will unfix it.

                                            I know whatever I do I don't want to mess around with my feed again-- but my issues were slightly different. I think I can keep the feedburner feed even if I end up switching to wordpress. My issue was that my feedburner feed was the whole blog, and the podcast episodes as a result weren't properly archived by itunes. I created a second feed just for the podcasts, using a blogger tab, and that works like a charm.

                                            It does mean if anyone on itunes goes to the link, they are sent just to the page of podcasts, not the home page, but the tabs are there so if they want to know more they can.

                                              Apple has much better things to do than to fix the problems with podcaster's feeds. If they took the time to fix everyone's issues (most of which are self-imposed), they wouldn't have time for much else. I think they could make things a little easier, like making a real setting and set up page for podcast owners, where they could just plug in a new feed (and validate that feed within iTunes), but for something they aren't making any money on, they don't do that poorly with podcasts.

I think I can keep the feedburner feed even if I end up switching to wordpress. My issue was that my feedburner feed was the whole blog, and the podcast episodes as a result weren't properly archived by itunes. I created a second feed just for the podcasts, using a blogger tab, and that works like a charm.
