One of the positively amazing things about blogs is their ability to rapidly pick up traffic. It has a lot to do with the way they link to each other so easily. This rapid traffic growth is a good thing and indeed it is what every blog owner craves for so much so that they often go to great lengths in their effort to attract traffic.

However it can also be a terrible thing if one is not prepared for it. It can mean that your blog goes down at the critical moment when it needs to stay up so that you can take advantage of the increased traffic. The truth of the matter is that most blogs run on free or cheap hosting sites are run from one computer. This works okay when you have 20 to 50 visitors but quickly turns into a nightmare when there are suddenly 100-200 visitors. The result is that the blog will start loading at such a snail pace that nobody will be interested.

To prevent this from happening, blogs should be load-balanced between several datacenters. This is referred to as scalability. However most avoid this because it is pretty expensive. Fortunately there are a few hosts who do not spare the expense to provide an enviable service.

SiteKreator.com is such a site. This site uses multi-datacenter hosting allowing for a dynamic balance of the traffic based on the load and location. A sudden surge in traffic is therefore no problem at all.

Other features that allow for easy access and ease of operation include easy switch between blog and discussion forum layout, posting by email and RSS feed, and a feature that allows email digests with new postings on the same thread.

With a site like this to host your blog, you will never be in that ridiculous position of worrying again about the damage that success brings to your blog venture.

There are two other unrelated but key features that are bound to bring lots of excitement to blow owners. Namely the fact that you can create a virtually unlimited number of blogs and the ease with which one can have dozens of moderators for each blog they create.
