Hosting for private blog networks is always a hotly debated topic. Here are a few options with the positive and negative traits.
Positive: Unique IP for every domain.
Negative: IP block owned by one company.
SEO hosting companies have thousands of IP addresses. Most of the time the IP addresses are owned in blocks. A SEO hosting company might own 111.222.333.1-255. If your site is hosted on 111.222.333.189, it is obvious that you’re using a SEO hosting company.
Consider This: Do real websites use SEO hosting? Of course not, they have no need for SEO hosting. The only people that use SEO hosting are people who are trying to hide from Google, which makes them a target.
Negative: Multiple sites all on the same IP address.
Having multiple sites on the same IP address tells Google that you own a bunch of sites.
Consider This: Don’t even start a network if you’re going to use a single shared hosting plan. You have too much to learn before taking this step.
Multiple Shared Hosting Plans
Positive: Very difficult (if not impossible) for Google to detect.
When building a private blog network, this is the second best method. With multiple shared hosting plans, your sites look like every other real site on the internet.
Consider This: Good hosting costs $3-7 per month. 100 sites will cost $300-700 per month in hosting alone.
Individual Owned Domains
Positive: Completely safe.
Negative: Less control
This is the method that our private blog network uses. If you buy blog posts from us, you will be buying posts on domains that are all owned by different people. This ensures that your links are real as as difficult to detect as they can possibly be.
Consider This: A secondary benefit to having domains owned by different people is nameservers, IP addresses, registrant info, and the host are all different!
