    I want to build a blog network that's built of clusters of little networks. Something like 5-10 sites in every cluster.

    I don't want to go the c-class IP SEO hosting route, since that's a bit questionable, especially after the Panda update.

    This might have been asked before but I couldn't quite find the exact answer I was looking for. If I host all 5-10 sites on the same shared hosting account but get a dedicated IP for each site, would I still be able to retain the SEO benefits?

    Give each site its own IP and make each site its own nameserver and you should be good to go. I personally would keep it to 5 at any one location but that is a personal preference thing I have no real testing to back it up.

    Thanks for that. What do you mean give each site its own nameserver? you mean like ns1, ns2, ns3, ns4, ns5.nameserver.com?

    If yes, I don't know if it's possible. I have to ask the hosting provider. I use hawk host, btw.

    Also, do you think I'm doing right steering clear of c-class IP hosting and going this route instead?

    I'd recommend what Volund said too. Scatter your IP's as much as you can. Having 100 IP's listed sequentially can be of no great help. I have currently about 25 domains in my network, and they are spread over 4 hosting accounts, and 5 A Classes. Just trying to be foolproof.

    Thanks for your input. Should I ask the hosting company for non-sequential dedicated IP addresses on different A classes then?
