Unique Ip for every domain?

    I have a site that I host under a shared hosting, recently I published an additional site and decided to host it under the same account. one of the things I decided to do is to make sure the new domain is on a unique ip.

    Unfortunately, my provider says that this unique IP will be "shared" throughout my account.

    Question is -could that do any harm to my ranking position in google?
    The main domain is basically a blog where I write personal articles, I don't promote it too much nor do I try to obtain links or anything - it's just a presonal project.

    The second site on the other hand is meant to generate money - more links coming in, SEO (mainly white hat), traffic etc.

    So after all that - should I split hosts? or just leave it as it is?

    IP doesn't matter unless you are in a toxic zone... usually requires hosting malware and illegal stuff. Other than that IP doesn't matter much unless the server can't handle the crawl load and googlebot slows down or aborts. In general that isn't the case. I host about 50 different websites from one VPS and most of them rank top 3 for their search terms. Google's system is far more interested in full hostnames than IP addresses. They and others can also detect which sites are hosted on an IP address so if some are private and some are not then you may have blown your cover, but unless you are doing the toxic stuff you really don't have to worry about that.

    The only time that it will cause problem is when PBN domains are hosted on the same IP otherwise it’s fine.
