    I setup wordpress mu up on godaddy.com and to me, it seems to work fine. The people at godaddy.com told me, though, that I would to upgrade to a dedicate server...

    what are people's experiences? And, thoughts?

    Run away screaming. :D

    But seriously - I find GD slow. If you're staying small and you're happy there, then stay.

    If you plan on getting big and doing awesome things, then I'd move the hosting part. GD is fine for domains though.

    (Your mileage may vary. The opinions expressed are mine. Offer void in Quebec.)

    what would you recommend? Is it hard to move to another hosting?

    Why don't you stay where you are for a while and figure things out?

    (I just caught up on the rest of your posts)

    "best' is sort of relative. :D

    There are some good ones, some not so good ones, and then there's "Fine, I'll do it myself!" dedicated. :D

    A lot depends on the plans of your site. WP Webhost is fairly good though for most basic installs.

    define small? and, define big? ie, when would the change be for a person to go from moving off a basic hosting plan to a strong one?

    I had started a blog platform http://www.blogcafy.com, with wpmu in Jan 2010 and haveing problem of all sorts. Hosting, spaming, Mysql table problem what not.

    I read often andrea often, you are good.

    1. First suggest me some hosting for wpmu and buddypress 19000 blogs yet only 300 traffic.

    2. The table number is going to unmanagable numbers.

    3. Huge spamming which I cannot control from the affiliates

    Please help me. I dont have huge budget for server, looking for peace of minde in the hosting fornt and concentrate on online promotions.

    Looking for your suggestion.

    1. a vps, and some caching plugins.

    2. Yes, it does. Use the ShardDB plugin or HyperDB.

    3. Follow the dozens of spam-and-splog-stopping suggestions here in the forums.

    Well, wordpress.com runs MU (more or less) and has over 200 million blog posts.

    Dedicated boxes. Lots of them when needed. there's currently three multi-database plguins out there, one paid, two free. One of the free ones (HyperDB) is what Automattic uses to run wordpress.com.
