    I'm just wondering, why do so many people have so many different hosting accounts to host their sites? Also, if it's actually REALLY needed to do so, then what is the recommended amount of domains hosted per account? Thanks in advance :D

    Depends what your doing - if your creating some sort of network you don't want all your eggs in one basket.

    If they are just MNS sites, it doesn't matter so much, assuming you have a host with decent bandwidth allowance and so on.

    Pretty much what he covered. In addition to this, many people have servers to run their blackhat programs on, their blackhat sites and after a while your sites may run slow if they get too big or there are too many on a server. If you're making money, the more servers the better really in terms of being able to link your sites together with intelligently planned linking schemes.

    I think it is because they want to protect they websites from attacks and other problems.

    Ah, so having multiple sites only apply if you're trying to create your own private network or using it for blackhat tools? So if I were to just host normal niche/MNS sites, then it would be completely fine correct?

    Yes. Upgrade the server specs as needed but no need for multiple accounts in different hosts.

    Does this apply though if you use blackhat methods on your site?

    If you use blackhat methods you usually want separate IP addresses for each "thing". If you have a link network or something all in the same IP address it will be a red flag for google. Also, other methods as well, if you only have 1 IP address and you're doing black hat stuff with it, it might get blocked / shitlisted.

    But heads up, it's not enough to have different IP addresses. Imagine 2 IP adresses but the sites in the same data center, with the same company. DNS would resolve through the same server (same parent company) and it would be the same physical location. So you're always safer by completely separating black hat from white hat.

    I have around 60 MNS blogs and i have 6 hosting accounts. Back in 2010 i used to host all these websites in 1 hosting account and 1 fine day the hosting had some problem and all the sites were down for almost 24hrs. All the earnings went down form $100 to $0 that day. Lesson learned ,Since then i m using 6 hosting accounts just to make sure this doesn't happen again. If 1 hosting goes down my other websites are still up.
