    How many sites should I host on 1 shared hosting account? this is for my private network.

    Can I host 2 sites or should I just stick to one?

    Thanks

    Maybe it's just me, but the reason I use my shared hosting is so I can host several sites without the costs. I have unlimited bandwidth or 15K gigs, which I'll never come close to using, and currently hosts about 10 or 12 sites with the one account with room for 100's more.

    Are you running your own private blog network?

    If you're running your own private blog network, just one. If you host more than one from the same IP, the network WILL get penalized. If you're just talking about normal websites that have incoming traffic, niche websites, etc then as many as you can. 10-20 depending on the size of the websites and the amount of traffic.

    I run 3 accounts and have a half a dozen sites on each with no issue at all. Heard of people with 50 sites+ but I would keep it to 50 small sites, 10 average sites or 2 or 3 big ones max

    If a site starts getting 1000+ real visitors a day you might want to get your host to put it on a dedi or at least a manged VPS anyway. (Unless it's porn, then 1000 a day is chicken feed)

    shared hosting has a single ip that are used for many sites hosted together.But if you wish to build a private network then host a single site on each but you will find it difficult to manage with numerous logins as site numbers gets increased,so to build a private network its good you go with SEO hosting and class ip's which performs well.

    As long as it is fast and the sites load fast, no problem with it at all!

    I do it a lot.

    2-3 blogs in same niche sitting on one IP should be no problem at all for a blog network. Content is what makes the difference and how you link from those blogs.

    Think how many sites are sitting on just one hostgator server using one IP. A lot. Same goes for cloud hosting where you technically get new IP based on clients GEO location - closest one to respond.

    There are many opinions out there (mine is just another one of them), nevertheless, I tend to agree that for best results you should probably try to host your important sites on different nameservers with dedicated IPs especially if they are related to one another or cross link.

    All other sites can enjoy each others company on the same server as they will never get anywhere anyhow.
