    I have a very small private network of about 20 sites and I really only add to it maybe a couple of times per year as it just supplements other link building strategies. I have used free hosts but these are really unreliable. I go in and check on sites I setup a few months ago and they are gone. I need a reliable option that puts my sites on separate IP Addresses, but isn't viewed as bad actor in Googles eyes. I know seohost dot com exists, but I've heard you're a fool to trust them. I don't need much, not even MySQL, just PHP and a very small amount of storage, like 50 MB per site is more than enough. My top tier ones that look very legit are hosted on legit hosts, but these smaller ones I just want them to stay up. Should I use an seo host? Please advise!

    I am open to suggestions here. Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.

    Have a look at webhostingtalk's marketplace, lots of $1 hosts to choose from.

    Are these really any better than a free host? At this point I am kinda just interested in working with a single company. Thanks for this suggestion though, it is greatly appreciated! Any other suggestions?

    $1 hosts might not be that bad now that I think of it. I am very paranoid and one day once my white/grey strategies trump my black hat stuff I want to dump all those privates anyways. I am even concerned right down a single company using the same name server for all domains. Thats a dead give-away to google in my eyes. If they are on separate IPs but all the domains point to the same nameserver that's a pretty obvious check to put into their algo IMO. Does any know if these seo hosts are smart enough to have separate name servers on separate ip blocks per domain you setup?

    Let me clarify that I'm no expert. Only been PBN'n like 10 months now.

    From what I understand hostnine is mentioned on here cause they have 5 datacenters. And you can assign separate IPs. People seem to like them but I don't see how they're not an SEO host... or how 50-100 sites at 5 centers wouldn't raise flags.

    Then there's nonameinternet. They don't get talked about much on here. 94 nodes in 52 locations.

    The problem with me is I've read some old posts where people talk in depth about shit I don't understand. There was some IT genius on here back in 2008 (it could have been later)... and the guy was just owning everyone on here. Teaching people what blocks are. I still see reputable members on here who didn't seem to see that guys thread. He was finding obvious footprints like matching names from datacenters. Wish I bookmarked the thread cause there was some great, but very complicated advice in there.

    The one thing I learned though is when I'm confused by something to that degree I'll just do things the hard way. Which is why I bought up lots of mid then low tier hosts. I can't think of any safer way to host your PBNs. Just keep the really low tier hosts minimal.

    Agreed I think if your entire strategy is PBN you're a fool or you just churn and burn em out and rake in what you can and start over. I prefer sustainable business models and wrote software that allows me to do this. It sucks I have to do SEO. I've got a nice mix of white, grey, and black going. And the more I get this business going, the more white its going. If I have 70 linking roots and 20 are PBNs I think those foot prints get diminished and a few links are high powered from industry leaders as well as some EDU and GOV in there, I think those footprints are diminised.

    Well I decided to just use an seo host, but will spread em across multiple only putting a few on each. Might sprinkle in some $1 hosts here and there as well.

    Get a VPS with a dedicated IP. It'll cost around the same as shared hosting with a dedicated IP. Wouldn't recommend going with a $1 host.

    It will increase the cost a lot . 1$ hosts are great for PNB.

    get 1 USD hosts, they are perfect for PBNs
    for example go for webhostingtalk, there are lots of cheap hostings

    You can host with big providers like Amazon and Rackspace through our platform Easy Blog Networks (BST thread on BHW).
