    Couple of years ago I made the mistake of going with $1 hosting companies for my PBN. A lot of my domains got deindexed, I believe the reason being the cheap hosting.

    Now I am rebuilding my PBN and choosing hosting providers. I believe the key to a successful PBN is hosting your sites on big hosting providers so you "blend in" with a bunch of other sites.

    is 1 and 1 hosting a big enough hosting company to allow me to blend in? or only PBN guys use them?
    what about namecheap hosting?

    You're not going to host your entire PBN on one host are you?

    As far as your question is concerned, I wouldn't go near 1&1 for hosting. I dealt with them years ago. They were shit then and they're even worse now.

    There are excellent hosting providers in the marketplace. Most of them are inexpensive. Try that.

    Of course not. I will do 2 domains per host.
    doesn't buying from the marketplace cause the exact same problem that I had before? afterall, all the blackhatters are using those.
    I will use only popular ones like hostgator, godaddy, fatcow, siteground, to blend in with all the legit sites.

    Mmkay. You've made up your mind so there's no use trying to talk you out of it.

    Those sites you named are all owned by the same shitty company. Blackhatters use those hosts too.

    LOL this is like 1 out of 50 posts when @alwaysinvisible is nice and helpful from very start and you are not kind enough to listen up...? :D

    Don't overthink on hosting btw, you'll get stuck in infinite loop.

    Yeah, but
    1) Popular hosting companies host 99 white hat sites for every 1 black hat site. Therefore, you are more likely to blend in and not get found out. The hosting companies in the marketplace, I bet out of 100 sites they host, all 100 are black hat.
    2) Not sure what you mean by shitty. Poor uptime? They guarantee 99.9% and who cares if your PBN goes down for a few minutes a month. Poor customer service? Who cares, it's just a PBN, it's not a real site.

    Run. Do not walk. As far away from 1&1 as possible. Absolutely horrendous hosting service and even worse support. Couldn't recommend them to my worst enemy. They are that bad.

    Damn it, don't tell people I'm being nice. They'll start to think that shit is true. Plus you'll ruin my rep.

    I meant the reviews are really bad. But, again, you already made up your mind about this. I personally wouldn't use 1&1 but if poor customer service and lack of uptime doesn't bother you then go for it.

    Theres plenty info on here about how to create a good PBN.

    Do not use 1&1 Not even for a domain. Not even if they offer you 500 years for free!!!! They are cunts of the highest order.

    ok, thanks guys.
    I didn't say this in my original post because I didn't want to affect the opinions, but last week I tried calling 1 and 1 and the woman picks up and says "hello?" sounded like I woke her up or something.

    Domain deindexing is part of the game, I've had a site deindexed even on an expensive host like Stablehost before, nothing makes you immune, but of course more expensive hosting companies decrease the odds of it happening.

    I heard your summons.

    1 and 1 is a huge no like everyone here said.

    Also, hosting 2 sites per hosting is a huge no for me as well. You are cutting corners. You know what happens to people who cut corners? They get banged. Like so many guys in the past 2 weeks who got their PBNs deindexed and all, so think twice before doing this.

    If you want to be super cheap, go to Webhosting talk forum, there are some $6 a year deals etc, but you get what you pay for and most of those hosts are shit, so deindexations and downtimes and crap, but still better than hosting 2 sites on the same IP.

    Last time I was lured in by their $1 dot com, i went ahead and made my purchase, but when I went to set up the domain it said pending.

    Waited a few more hours, checked to see that they did in fact get my money already and then out of curiosity went to another registrar and tried to register the same domain. It was still available even after 1 and 1 took my money.

    Well what do you know? So I went ahead and registered it AGAIN with the second registrar and it was ready instantly. Took me 2 days (and many phone calls) to get 1 and 1 to cancel the order that they now couldn't possibly deliver since I already purchased it elsewhere. Took even longer to get my $1 back.

    Yeah they absolutely suck.
