    Multiple Domains One Hosting Plan

    The situation is this:

    We have 16 domains registered on Godaddy

    All but 1 domain use Domain By Proxy, giving them unique IP addresses.

    HOWEVER; We only have 1 hosting plan.

    We are considering aliasing all domains and storing them on the same hosting plan.

    My question is: how does this factor in to SEO, does it null and void the unique domain IP addresses?

    Knowing that all the domains are on one hosting plan, wouldn't search engines give them less weight (and simply view them as subfolders instead of seperate domains?)

    Any help from the old timers here would be greeatly appreciated! Hope you all had a great thanksgiving.

    Hi Marc,

    The answer is that it depends. What is your purpose in trying to hide the ownership of the sites? What will you be using them for? Are they all topically related?

    The short answer is if you are doing all white hat SEO and the sites will provide valuable content for your visitors, then it does not matter if you only have one hosting account.

    If you are doing shades of gray in your SEO then it might matter.

    If you are doing questionable or black hat seo then you will also want different hosting accounts.
