    I am using Hostmonster to host my sites and they have unlimited addon domains. I think this is great since I won?t have to pay a host fee for every domain name I buy.
    I was thinking and now I?m a bit worried about Google. Does anyone know if I host all my domains as a addon domain and one site gets sandboxed will Google sandbox all the domains since they are all addon domains?

    Google shouldn't be able to see that they are add on domains but it can see they are all hosted on the same IP.

    If the domains also have the same owner information you might have a problem.

    It all depends on your sites quality and quantity: if you are planing to make 100 micro niche websites, this will definitely be a bad idea, as they could easily put penalty on all your websites, however, if you will be hosting <10 good quality websites (readable content, which is not overloaded with affiliate links or ads), I wouldn't worry about different c-class ip's ;)

    I've had 20+ autoblogs all addon domains. Google sees that as all different domains. I've never had a problem with it.

    I'm not sure about the IP but wouldn't everyone on Hostmonster have the same IP then? Do they assign a set IP for every hosted site and all the addon domains? I know the basic IP stuff but I have no idea how things like this work. Does Google look at who registered the Domain?

    I am trying to design quality sites but even when I think that I am Google has sandboxed me. I am just wondering if I did host a 100 sites if Google would have them all linked some how since they are addon Domains. I don't have the money to host a lot of sites and register Domains at the same time.
