    I will be building a site that will hopefully be pretty large in terms of pages and hopefully traffic.

    Its going to be a news site for a niche.

    I want to set up a new host for the domain completely seperate from my other domains.

    I am looking at Hostgater. One question I have, is it worth getting the Business Plan hosting package so I get a free dedictaed IP? Wold that help in SEO?

    you can use dedicated ip with baby plan $2 monthly

    if you don;t need toll free no and ssl then baby plan is gud for you

    dedicated ip's always gud for seo

    How do you get a deciated Ip for the Baby Plan? Is it an add on?

    I will only be using one domain, so is Hatchling Plan a better choice, can you get the dedicated IP for that plan?

    Hi Fred,
    Look into vps if Your budget for this new venture permits that. Your site will load much faster and Your sites will not be suspended in case of traffic spikes.

    Business plan will work. I only use seperate IP's for all my own websites, but they are on shared IPs. So if your planning on hosting a bunch of domains I would look at seohosting.com - another hostgator product.
