    having multiple domains under one hosting

    When you have multiple websites under 1 hosting plan, obviously one of them needs to be the mail domain for that hosting plan, and the other domains appear as separate folders under that main domain in your ftp panel but regardless of that they are still totally separate websites. does the main domain get an advantage over other names because of this? or do the other domains listed as separate folders get a disadvantage? - in terms of SEO, or any other thing?

    The simple answer to your question is "NO", it doesn't.

    The truth is a little more complex. If the host IP is supporting multiple domains and one of them is "BlackListed" then yes it would make a difference. If any of the other domains engage in mail relay spam then yes, it would impact SEO.

    Bottom line, in and of itself, shared hosting doesn't impact seo because it is shared hosting. It is the other sites on the shared host that could cause a problem, which is why spending the extra bucks for a dedicated IP is often time done.

    Not to mention, shared sites show up as a subdomain of the main site, further complicating the SEO.
