    Hi, I was wondering whether subdomains work as good as regular domains when I am trying to rank them. For example, I have a site using my main domain name for one niche but for different niche to save some money on buying a new domain I am planning to create a subdomain, would it rank as good as regular domain from seo perspective?

    You can create subdomains on your main domain, and then with a new domain name point redirect to it, and then create a separate niche there.

    So your only really paying for domain names, an you get those for less than $5

    wow, nice idea.
    Since I have linux vps probable I should just somehow set up multiple domains on it. I don't know why but I thought domains are more expensive than just 5$

    The way most people work, is they buy shared hosting, which is linked to a domain. They then create 20-30 subdomains (obviously with domain names pointing to them)

    Once the site starts to pay, it usually gets moved to its own IP, or the group gets moved to a dedicated.

    Some people prefer to have separate sites, separate ip's. But if your starting off you don't need to go that far. Matt Cutts has confirmed this is ok, plus if your a "small webmaster" then its reasonable to expect you have 20-30 "clients"

    Sometimes you get domains for $0.99, check regularly here for godady coupons.

    Here is one of the latest.

    If one subdomain gets penalized, does the penalty affect any others and/or the parent domain?

    Thanks

    Not 100% sure, but when there is a footprint, there is always a chance it might be.
