    I've seen HostNine mentioned a fair few times on BHW and after registering a few expired domains I think they're obviously the best bet to start off with, especially because they have the one-click WP install and dedicated IPs (and nope, I'm not affiliated with them :p)

    I was wondering if someone could shed some light on the difference between reseller verses shared when it comes to hosting you PBN sites, though? I'm thinking the $8.50 shared hosting plan (no extra charge for dedicated IPs) is the way to go but just want to make sure I'm not missing something vital in terms of reseller verses shared.

    Thanks in advance, guys.

    reseller gives different c blocks.

    shared doesnt, unless you buy multiple shared packages

    Thank you for the insight!

    So for example, if I were to host 4-5 PBN sites over at HostNine then using the Shared plan should/would be relatively safe whereas if I wanted to host more (30+) there, in order to avoid a footprint I'd be best off looking at a reseller package?

    As a reseller I now have to pay $2 per IP when I need them, so you may find it cheaper to go eith the shared option if you're going to need a different IP for each of your domains.

    Thanks for your reply!

    You're saying the with the reseller account you have to purchase dedicated IP addresses separately ($2) for each and every site you host or is that after a certain amount of free/included ones have been utilised?

    If it is $2 per IP from the get-go then perhaps the sharing plan that includes additional IP addresses may be the better choice for a small collection (5-8) PBN sites?

    I'd love your thoughts? :)
