    Best is 5 different domains. Cheapest is 5 subdomains!
    If the domain has authority(age,trust etc), you wont have a problem. If it has not i would say pick 5 domains.

    If the domain has enough trust (age, backlinks, indexed pages etc), you wont have a a problem indexing and ranking your subdomains.

    I would suggest getting seperate domains. Blogspot is good and its a good example of a subdomain of a very trusted domain^^!

    Well if you want to actually see results and make money then buy 5 domains. The only real use for subdomains these days is creating link farms with wp multisite otherwise they are pretty much a waste of time to be honest.

    It may cost a bit more to get started but you'll recoup that very quickly

    How about sub domain like mysubdomain.mywebsite.com in a different IP address? Does that make a difference?

    Thanks
