    Hola!

    Anyone has some good/bad experience of using free hosting solutions for hosting PBN sites?

    As I've heard for experienced SEOs, it's not a very good idea to host your private network on servers provide by free hosting services. They say most of the IPs of such free hosting providers are blacklisted, etc.

    I'm still not sure about this. Certainly, testing it yourself would be the best option, but I just though I might get some feedback from forumers and then might save some time an effort.

    cheers guys :)

    Free hostings for PBNs are not good. You should pay it if you need good hostings.

    They are good if you have just a few websites. Not really a big deal, never had a problem with them. If you're hosting more, then look for a paid solution.

    Can you please give me few examples of good ones?

    I want to make my software do the 99% of the job so that users don't have to worry about setting up hostings.

    If you want to make money with your site try paid PBN's.
    At first, try with low packages and go with other packages.

    I'd recommend regular/paid hosting over free hosting for a PBN.
    The main problem with free hosting for a PBN is that it's not necessarily "yours," thus, can likely be taken down (or deleted) for various reasons and possibly without notification.
    Now you could encounter some of those issues with paid hosting, but they are likely to at least notify you of such actions before it happens.

    Yes, that's right. Can be taken down anytime.

    I'm using IP Networx for my own PBN.

    The thing is... I'm developing a software that will build PBNs on autopilot. That's why I need free hostings that can be used automated by the script.

    Free hosting for PBN is bad idea, Free hosting for a script you'll be utilizing for a vital part of your game plan is even a worse idea.

    A lot of hosts provide re-seller accounts that have access to many dedicated IPs per account. That's still not as good as just having an individual host for each one, but if youre looking for simple, consider that.

    Edit: didn't see your last post where you detailed that the free accounts would be used for website creation BY your script. If you're doing it in serious bulk, free is def. the way to go. When the term PBN gets dropped, I quickly think quality sites with nice backlink profiles. I wouldn't ever want to put them on garbage hosting. If you're just referring to any old website, than sure; free is free is free. Be prepared for lots of downtime and ads to be displayed on your site.

    I'd stay away from free hosting if i were you. Look it up on webhostingtalk forum for cheap $1-$2/month hosting. Diversify the IP / hosting is they key when building pbn.

    There is nothing like Free in this world..

    If there is free then you feel good for some time, but then after You will get a bad experience in the future.. I don't recommend free hosting.. You can get good service in paid option...

    Yes, I can confirm from my own experience that the "typical" free hosts are only free as far as the pricing is concerned. You pay for it dearly in other ways like down times, horrifying IP neighborhood, blacklisting by Google itself etc..

    However, there is another source of free hosting and those are popular blogging platforms like Tumblr, Weebly, Blogspot etc.

    These actually allow you to use your own domain name instead of the default one like: myblogname.tumblr.com -> myblowname.com

    Yes, nameservers and IPs will be the same with millions of other blogs but it's not like Google is going to blacklist ns1.tumblr.com.

    Downside is that control over these is very limited in terms of design and things like hiding bots.

    However, there are many benefits.

    Like most things is life: What you pay is what you get. I wouldn't risk the rankings of a moneysite to save a few bucks on hosting. Noone is offering hosting as a charity, they'll either plaster your sites with ads you can't control or insert links you can't control. Maybe even redirect x% of your traffic (Googlebot may assume you are cloaking) elsewhere or similar. There is always a catch.

    Like LatteGrande said, on sites like WHT you'll find loads of cheap hosts and a bunch of honest user feedback about them.

    Either go with cheap hosting or a reseller account. I would personally stay away from free hosting.

    The higher end the host the better. Free or $3/year hosts are KNOWN spammer hubs for Google... so anything you build on that crap foundation could suffer from its hosting alone. Build a quality PBN on a decent host with a nice A/B class IP and you will need 1/3, 1/4, 1/50th the PBNs you need if you spam a template on a free host with a shitty shared IP.

    Paid website hosting definitely comes out as the winner. I think paid website hosting is the still the best option for anyone seeking web hosting, especially for PBN's. It simply has more to offer, and can be obtained for very affordable rates these days.
