    Hey BHers. I would appreciate anybody's advice here!

    I own and monetize 100 domains on one shared host account! I know some of you would call me crazy but I want to jump up to a better hosting plan. What is the best way to go?

    1) Buy a Reseller Hosting and spread these 100 domains on 100 individual accounts?
    2) VPS?
    3) Dedicated Server?

    I want to spread all domains so that one IP is used for a maximum of 4 domains....

    Any input will be greatly appreciated..

    PS: I will be using HOSTGATOR.

    Probably best to just buy multiple IP's from your domain provider, you can probably even get a whole block of 32 for a discount. This way you can keep all your sites on one server which makes it easier to manage.

    Once they're all the ip's are pointed to your server you just need to config them for your web server.

    For apache it's easy. Your directives usually start like this:

    <VirtualHost *:80>

    So you would just change it to include the ip you want for that domain.

    <VirtualHost 123.123.123.123:80>

    It would be a bit of work for 100 domains, but that's how I would do it. Never used host gator, maybe they have control panel options to do it.
