Shared hosting may = Bad Neighbors

10 replies
Just like real estate, where it's location, location, location,
the type of hosting account you have may determine your neighbors.

If you have sites on shared hosting, you may want to check your neighbors:

      You beat me to it. I was going to make the same suggestion. With that being said... I have seen so many people with fifty or more baby accounts on shared servers. Getting a managed dedicated server would save them so much money and make all of their sites much faster.

        Agree, the "unlimited domains" can be seductive but counter productive.

      That will keep your IP from getting blacklisted but won't save your site from a server whose performance is getting hammered because of another sites traffic.

        The OP was regarding bad neighborhoods, not performance.

          Bad neighbors, at least in regards to shared hosting, does not necessarily mean just spammers. It could mean high traffic neighbors. Sort of like the rental house next door with traffic coming and going at all hours
          Or how about a video sharing site for a neighbor?
          Hosts will tell you that they monitor this but how bad do things have to get before they take action?
          Shared hosting can certainly be valuable if you're on a budget but I'd still like to know my neighbors.

    This is a good idea for us. Fact is. there are many similar names. I means name like TITer or HOmale that are spam. Being in a bad neighborhood is band for your pr.

      Another way to find neighbors:
      go to Bing search and enter

      ip:123.123.123.123

      replace 123.123.123.123 with your webserver's IP

    Talk about bad neighbors. One of my blogs showed 643 other sites being hosted at that domain. Not only could that slow things down, there are many variations of pornhub domains that I'm sure could be considered questionable. Ouch!! Time to move to a dedicated IP
