Hosting several domains at one account- not a good thing?

betprize asked 1 year ago
I host several domains at a single account. Do you think it is bad for SEO or it does not matter?
Thanks beforehand for your opinions.

It dosn’t matter has long as your not interlinking them all.

Google is big on looking at Class C networks as not so hot for link weight..

Yep, the links between the sites will be useless since Google views sites on the same C-Class as the same site. Likely links in from other sites to more than one of your sites will be devalued too, but that is just a guess.

not sure I fully understand it <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” /> but let me ask, too.
for example:

Site “A” is on HostGator
Sites “B” and “C” are on GoDaddy

Which links between these sites are “bad” and which are “good?”

webber286 answered 1 year ago
No incoming link is a “bad” link, just varrying degrees of good. For instance, it’s pretty much agreed that a one-way link is better than a reciprocal link. So, in your situation if you were to give a one-way link from site A to site B and another one-way link from site B to site C and a third one-way link from site C to site A, Google would see that as the same as a reciprocal link since to them sites B and C are the same.

However, just because you have 2 sites at GoDaddy doesn’t necessarily mean they are on the same Class C Domain. GoDaddy is pretty larger and may have more than one Class C (I’m not really sure how that stuff works). You can check here to see if your sites are on the same Class C:

More than one site in a single host?
Risky IMO.
They may go out of business, rogue, fraudulent, black listed IP etc.
Several companies is better
In that case only one site will be down.

Google does indeed look at Class C addresses, BUT it doesn’t penalise you for having more than one domain on them. It is very common for hosting providers to share Class C, even the same IP address, for multiple sites and Google respects that. However as Villa10 points out, if you share with others you run the risk of being blacklisted if they do, although its commonly thought that this no longer applies at Class C level, only at IP level.

Regards interlinking them: Google can detect it as it can with 3-way recips outside the same block but it does NOT penalise them. AT worst, you will find interlinking has no benefit to Google.

You need to check your canonical URL out though and check the www / non-www redirect appropriately. That is far more likely to damage you.

I don’t know what that means <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” /> Could you explain, if it’s not too much trouble? Also, when I checked some of my sites, it said they were “Class A,” what does that mean?

You need to ensure that when a user goes to http://yoursite.com it takes them to http://www.yoursite.com (or vice versa depending on which you default to). You do this with the “.htaccess” file – there is another thread on CAP that deals with this currently – just can’t remember where – but a search should find it. Otherwise Google “htaccess 301 redirect”. basically you put this code in your .htaccess file in the same directory as your Index page:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^yourwebsite.com
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourwebsite.com/$1 [R=permanent,L]

…obviously replacing “yourwebsite” with your web site <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” />
