    I have just registered some high PA and DA domains from Godaddy auctions. Now the next part is to buy hosting for these domains. I have heard some people say to use different C class IP hosting. What if I use the cloudflare for it?? I mean just use the common shared hosting and put all the sites behind cloudflare. I only have around 4 domains... Is this gonna work?? As cloudflare has a huge pool of IP addresses and I am sure the 4 domains will get a different IP address.

    I think you need to add the new domains in different days in order to make sure they'll have different IPs with cloudflare.

    I heard from another member that http://www.dollarseohosting.com/ should be good. Didn't test it thought.

    I would probably use something like this rather than cloudfare as it isn't too expensive compared to the cost for the domains.

    You got me confused man... 2 people are saying to go with dollar seo hosring, and you are saying to stay away from them...

    I already have a hosting and I was thinking that it is just 4 domains and what if I use cloudflare... I am not going to run a huge 1000 domains blog network..

    I will look into these hosting sites too.

    i have never used cloudflare, so can't comment on that

    Using diffrent hosting companies (the cheap 1-2$ ones) will be better for your network as it will be not just on diffrent A and C class ips, but it will also be in diffrent locations. the only downside, is that it takes more time to setup, but if you only plan use just 4 domains, then it's no an issue, I got over 100 sites spread over 65 diffrent hosts.

    the owner of dollarseohosting is a good SALES-person, with well written sales pages and excuses

    there is some info about dollarseohosting

    I think using cloudflare will be a safe bet. Especially as the network is so small.

    I think you should go for individual hosting plan for each domain not matter if it is a small or a big network. Cheap hosting plans like 10-20 bucks an year is an easily solution to this. No matter if it only allows 1 domain, 1 GB Hard Disk and few monthly bandwidth. I have a network of 18 domains (all on different Hosts). They are still working fine for me (even after all the animal updates).

    Regards!

    I am not sure if the dollar seo is good. I seen some reviews says it isn't good.

    It shouldn't be a problem using a CDN or cloudflare. The footprints you create in the network will be most important, so if you interlink all those blogs they'll probably get found in a minute.

    I would not use dollar seo hosting. You can't even get good beer for a dollar, why would you get hosting?

    Just google 1$ hosting, you dont need private IP's, total cost will be 12$/site/year

    As someone said above, don't use SEO hosting for this type of stuff.

    Go with some cheap $1/month hosts and you're set to go, get a new one for every two blogs or so.

    If you only have a handful of domains to host then the best bet is cheap shared individual hosting accounts or cloudflare.

    SEO hosting is more of an option to consider if you want to host a large number of domains. Running 100+ separate hosting accounts is not really worth the hassle for me.

    Regarding dollarseohosting, they did have a major issue recently where some of their clients (including me) were hacked. Since then they have hardened their server security and I have improved my wordpress security - I've had no problems since then....

    The reason I continue with dollarseohosting to host some of my domains:

    1. Price - It costs me $50/month to host 50 domains (with multiple A/B/C class IPs) rather than $250+/month with individual shared hosting. I am hosting a private blog network, these are not money sites and so really each individual domain is not super important to me.

    2. Customer support - Earlier on when I was setting up my blog network I wanted advice on how to reduce footprints to a minimum - I sent quite a few support tickets and got some pretty solid advice from their tech support (Ken). That being said, I have seen posts from some other customers who had problems with their websites hacked. I hold the philosophy that "the customer is (nearly) always right" - so rather than blaming customers for not securing their website or having back-ups, the response should really only have been to acknowledge the problem with hosting security and to fix it.

    Customer support to me was pretty good - they didn't blame me but rather endeavored to fix the problem from their end - but I was disappointed to see some other customers having those issues

    3. Quality
    Overall I'm pretty happy with the quality. A lot of people think that you can't get anything of value for $1 (really you're paying $1 per IP, but monthly subscription is $10+). I don't know if that's entirely true - businesses like this can prosper provided that they have a large number of customers. The hosting up time has been pretty good and all of the features are exactly as you would find with other hosting companies.

    Really the main issue here was of server security - this is a major basic feature of any hosting company and is crucial to maintain if they want to continue successfully. It doesn't matter how cheap a hosting provider is, if security is flawed then it is no good.

    So it's a risk I'm willing to continue taking - I've got better wp security and updraft backup for all of my domains. All of my data is backed up and can be restored or transferred as needed. I'm continuing because I personally was happy with the support I received and also pleased to see that they upgraded security from their end.

    The only other time in the past I used cheap seo hosting was with ideastack - they were repeatedly hacked and customer support was lousy. Yes, you do get what you pay for, just make sure your eyes are wide open!

    I would personally get $1 hosting for each blog. For the amount of money you spend on building the blogs, $1 a month is a pretty good shield. It only takes 1 Google calculation to ruin your entire network, why not protect it?

    I agree that you don't want all of your eggs in one basket - you have to diversify hosting, but I think that seo hosting can form part of that mix

    Definitely! To help diversify hosting, I agree that you should have different types of hosting.. SEO, Regular, etc.

    There is a shitload of hosts there are hosting webhotels for about $1/month. Go for them.
