    I have a small 15 website PBN that I want to grow but the cost of hosting and keeping track of all of these domains is becoming a pain. For any of you guys with a PBN out there, what do you do for hosting?

    I don't have any PBNs myself but If I did I would definitely use individual hosting accounts rather than SEO hosting. Keeping track of them shouldnt be too hard if you keep everything organized in a spreadsheet, but yes costs are going to become steep....

    Just thinking that it would be good if there was a service where you could get hosting for single domain on many different hosting accounts - could be good money making opportunity....

    It's a tricky one, like davids355 said you really should try to use individual accounts as much as possible.

    Personally, I keep a spreadsheet of my domains, logins, passwords, registrar and host. I keep my sheets on dropbox so I always have access to the details if I need them in a hurry and I'm away from my desk.

    Also Firefox plugins like Lastpass help alot for passwords too! I would be lost at sea without lastpass to remember everything for me! :cool:

    I've been using Final Infinity/IPNetworX for a while now and I'm pretty happy with them. It's super convenient and I like their backend system. Obviously if you've got the patience and organizational skills to manage accounts with tons of different providers go for it, but otherwise I like what IPNetworX has to offer. They're available in the Hosting section of the BHW Marketplace.

    I go for the cheaper hosting, and i totally purchase the ones i pay annually.

    I don't have the time and money to keep renewing hosting per month. I would also advice you to do this, it's helpful and totally recommendable. It's costly, but effective.

    Agree with these sentiments. Pay yearly, and get a discount, and don't worry about it month to month. Costs of the PBN should be offset by revenues. If you can't use your PBN to make SEO gains leading to revenues, then perhaps something is wrong structurally with your PBN. This is a business expenditure, so it must be easily factored into the costs of doing business. It's value is generally self-evident.

    15 websites should not bog you down from a data tracking position. That's the kind of thing one easily keeps track of in a Microsoft excel spreadsheet.

    IPNetworX is great but I'd avoid it because I can't image Google won't eventually take them down. I like looking for hosting in foreign countries. Often you can email the webmasters and ask them for a cheaper deal, many of them will give you an account for under $1 a month.

    You should also check EBN (BST on BHW), we allow you to host with different brand hosting providers from one dashboard (Amazon, HP Cloud, Rackspace etc.).
