    hello fellow bhw members... iv been a lot of stuff lately and iv decided to buy a hosting for my website. I'm kinda confuse of the factors that i should consider and there are some terms i dont really understand. I'm looking on buying on this hosting company >> http://www.philhosting.net/web-hosting/linux/personal.html ( The basic package )

    Goal of the hosting

    I would be hosting 3 domains on it.

    a. Website 1 - to try all things i learn here of selling of clickbank products
    b. Website 2 - to try ewhore methods and stuff
    c. Website 3 - for my father's printing business (make him a website and apply seo techniques that i learn)

    I have done a lot of research and kinda scared of wasting money and so this puts me to posting a thread to get some advice.

    Questions:

    1. Does offshore hosting means outside US area, and that makes philhosting.net a offshore hosting? ( The reasons is that i might try black hat techniques also and iv read i should use offshore hosting for security purposes )

    2. It says on the link above to the philhosting.net basic package
    "DOMAINS ALLOWED - 3" , does this mean i can host 3 different domains on it and it has different IP with each other?? ( Reason - i've read in doing link wheels or techniques like that, Its advisable to have different IPs"

    3. is there any factor that i should consider with my purpose of buying hosting that i didnt mention? do you guys think that philhosting.net is a good hosting in terms of features and stuff?


    Basically the purpose of all of this is to try on what i learned here in bhw, im on the trial and error stage now, i just want to be careful on spending my money. i know im a newbie, I really dont want to waste your time guys, but this would be really a great help to me, iv been searching and reading a lot. It still confuses me.:( that's all for now.. thanks pros...

    1. Offshore means any company that belongs outside your country. 2. Try contacting the hosting company to clarify that one. Its better if you can hear from them than just on neighborhoods.

    Well, "real" offshore hosting is hosting in countries which will not cooperate easily with your country. But that is really not needed under most circumstances - even with most "blackhat" methods.

    If you want to (mis)use trademarks, steal entire webdesigns or directly scam people from their money, you would need such a bulletproof host. But iframed offers, autoblogs, blackhat SEO etc. shouldn't give you any trouble on most hosts.

    It doesn't sound like you are going to use any "hardcore" blackhat techniques, so there is no reason to pay extra for "offshore" hosting in my oppinion.
    Another way to not waste your money is to WORK ON 1 PROJECT AT A TIME! A very common mistake (which I've done myself in the past) is to get a lot of ideas, buy a lot of domains, and then never really finish off any of the ideas - and thereby only loosing money.

    Stick to a few projects and WORK HARD on them - make a good plan, solid deadlines, and follow it through. Only move on to another idea when the first one is running on autopilot, or you are totally sure it is not worth working on anymore :)

    Yes you can host 3 different domains, but its shared hosting so i think they will be on the same IP

    Nearly all shared hosting accounts will put your three domains (or n domains) on the same IP.
