    Hey everybody,

    It looks like many people use cheap hosting or SEO hosting and then install WordPress when creating PBNs.

    I was thinking about hosting and building my network blogs on websites like Tumblr, Weebly, Webnode, Jigsy, Yola etc... (and some on WP as well)

    Have anybody tried doing it this way? Is it safe to do so?

    I looked at some of those sites and it costs on average $5-7 per month. It's more expensive than some hosting (I got 1 for $0.70/month for example) but I think it might worth it to reduce footprint of the network.

    I'm just worried that few domains might end up being hosted on the same IP or is it not a big concern since there might be 1000s of other sites hosted on the same IP?

    Your thoughts and experience will be much appreciated!

    thanks :)

    using tumblr, weebly and blogger with custom domain is fine as you would have separate IP for each of your blog. But keep in mind, you always have a risk on loosing your domain even if the chanced are quite less.

    if you are going for separate hosting, I would suggest you to go for dedicated IPs ..it might cost you a bit extra, but it would be handy.

    What do you mean by loosing my domain? Like they will kick me off their platform?

    In that case I would just buy hosting and put WordPress on it.

    Do you think they might kick me off because of the type of content that I have on the site?

    I'm thinking of creating PBN sites that actually look like real sites - create a fictitious person and have social media accounts for each of those sites, have original content and quality content. That way hopefully they won't do it. I have web 2.0s that I built over a year ago with spun content and they are still there.


    I'm also thinking learning basic site setup using Joomla and Drupal.

    Yes those web 2.0 sites can delete your site at any time for any reason. And you can find tons of $5/year hosting here: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4
    All depends on if you're building a high PR web 2.0 network or a high PR blog network, as they are not the same thing.

    They can delete your page or website on a web 2.0 for any reason. Though I have a few that I have auto posting from my main site to wordpress, tumblr and a few others and no issues for the last 3 years.

    If you use hand written content and images/videos to make the site look real then I see no reason why they'd kick you off. I've been using Tumblr for a while now because it's free and the only real downside is that you don't have control over the actual files so can't redirect old pages or block bots with a robots.txt - I haven't checked but I guess this would be the case with other platforms too.

    I'm building high PR blog network but I want to host my sites on platforms like tumblr, weebly, webs etc. I'm not building web 2.0 network.

    Currently all my sites are on different hosts that I got from webhostingtalk.com but many providers there come and go. It's just really annoying changing hosting providers every 3-6 month because they go out of business
