Is there a penalty for 1000 domains on one IP?

    I'm running about 20 sites on one bluehost account. I'm new to IM but find my sites a bit harder to rank then described by various guides.

    I just discovered that there are over 900 sites on the same IP.

    Even if I was running complete WhiteHat (I don't) Im quite sure that quite a few of the other sites on my IP would run blackhat.

    Is there a huge penalty for sharing IP like this? Should I move my sites to a cleaner IP/host?

    No, many web hosts oversell so you won't be penalized. The situation where you would be penalized is when all 1,000 sites on 1 ip link directly to you.

    As long as you don't start interlinking all of them then you should be fine.

    That's a lot of website in one IP. Its going to significantly slow down the load time of each website. I think 50 websites in 1 IP is fine but 1K is pushing.

    Way too many sites here, if you get traffic it will be so slow and of course if someone else is being naughty on the IP it could affect the service for everyone. If you can get to another host.
