    so host gator doesn't guarantee different c class ip's, and if you have anything less than the business plan you are on the same IP anyway. they have another site called seohosting that i'm looking at where they charge $7.00 per c-class IP for 5 IP's. Kind of sucks since I only want 3 but I can always reuse all of them for each project i start up as feeder IP's for longtail EMDs.

    what are other people using here? any recommendations?

    I use multiple SEO Hosts to spread the risk, Hostthename, WHP, SeoHosting (hostgator), AseoHosting as well as some private servers..

    that sounds like a pain though, why wouldn't you just use the seohosting package? what risk are you referring to?

    If you have only a couple sites you will be perfectly fine having them all at the same host but I have hundreds and lot's of network got recently totally de-indexed (no mine) and I believe spreading them across hosts is another small protection layer...

    Although I have a couple SEO hosts, I don't know if I'd do it again if I did it over again.
    Think about it, they probably have 1000 sites on each IP. Say there are 10 different Ips they have. You have 1000 sites on 10 IPs, and almost every group of those 1000 are linking to the same 1000 money sites over each IP.

    I just buy random host accounts. Starting to get expensive, but you can find some cheap ones for $1/month here and there. I have about 110 right now. I have one of my workers check my sites twice a week to make sure they are up. Cheap hosts = shit service. It's actually a bit of a headache. Every week there are atleast a few down.

    well thanks for the input from everyone. I've made my decision though and I went with seohosting because unlike aseohosting, they allow unlimited domains per IP. now, i know what you are all thinking - that defeats the purpose of c-class IPs! well, yes, if all of my domains were linking to each other.

    my strategy is actually: 1 money site, 4 feeder sites with longtail EMD & quality content on the feeder sites linking to my money site. if i want more sites to supplement my backlinking strategy, they will have to be on completely new hosts or blog sites or whatever. from there, I can use the same strategy over and over and over again on the same 5 c-class ip's (essentially copy/paste).

    i'm sure there's some flaw in my logic here, but at least my first go around should be successful. if my copy/paste idea doesn't work, well i'll cross that bridge when i get there :D

    For checking uptime you might try uptimerobot.com It's free, it works and you won't have to waste manpower checking your sites!

    This is good, I actually just asked this same question before finding this post. I was looking into http://www.cclassiphosting.com/ - they're really cheap, but that might be for a reason (i.e. bad service/uptime/etc.) We'll see what happens

    I like this. I just don't like the idea of paying for hosting like this as it can get to be very expensive over time. So I worked it out a bit differently. I set up a hosting company and sell very cheap hosting on reseller accounts to cover the costs of my vps's. Turns out that it works out better than paying seo hosting. So I just place my sites on different vps's as need be and other people pay for this.

    I know it's extra work but the backend makes it cheaper.

    Why not write a quick little app to check that they are up and put it on a cron to run every 4-6 hours and then email you back the results... This is what we do. Saves one persons time, more reliable and details are checked more often. You can then go a step further to monitor those that go down most often and record in a DB then you can examine uptime (or failures) on a monthly basis and cancel those that fall below your desired threshold.

    Should be able to write something in PHP in about 5 mins.

    Thanks, I'll look into this. Last time I posted this question, there weren't any really good answers.

    Cool I'll check it out.

    This should get your started (threw it together here so don't prosecute me if there are issues).

    PHP:

    //SET SOME STUFF
    //Your Email
    $myEmail '';
    //Your email subject for fault domains
    $mySubject '';
    //File containing domains
    $myDomains '';

    //Load our domains from file
    $domains file_get_contents($domainFile);
    $domains explode('\n',$domains);

    //Our list of faulty domains
    $issues = array();

    foreach(
    $domains as $domain){
          if(
    $resultCode get_contents($domain) !== false){
                 
    $issues[] = array('domain'=>$domain,'code'=>$resultCode);
          }
    }

    //Prepare the email.....
    if(count($issues) == 0))
    die(
    'All Good in the hood!');

    $myMessage "I've checked a bunch of hosts, these had issues:\n";

    foreach(
    $issues as $issue){
          
    $myMessage .="\t".$issue['domain']." - Status Code: ".$issue['code']."\n";
    }

    mail($myEmail,$mySubject,$myMessage);

    //A neat CURL function
        
    function get_contents($url) {
            
    // Initiate the curl session
            
    $ch curl_init ();        
            
    // Set the URL
            
    curl_setopt $chCURLOPT_URL$url );
            
    // Removes the headers from the output
            
    curl_setopt $chCURLOPT_HEADERtrue );
            
    curl_setopt $chCURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATIONTRUE );
            
    curl_setopt $chCURLOPT_TIMEOUT);
                    
    curl_setopt($chCURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST'HEAD');
            
    // Execute the curl session
            
    $output curl_exec $ch );
            
    // Close the curl session
            //Get status
            
    $info curl_getinfo $ch );
            
    $httpcode curl_getinfo $chCURLINFO_HTTP_CODE );
            
    curl_close $ch );
            
    // Return the output as a variable
            
    if ($httpcode !== 200) {
                return 
    $httpcode;
            } else {
                return 
    false;
            }
        } 
    //function

    I use Binary Canary and can totally recommend this service, never tried uptime robot..

    If you have less then 100 sites I think you can live with the free version even, I belive you get 5 monitors free which is enough to get an idea of what's going on at your hosts (though it pings slow)
