HOSTING -How Important Is A C-Class IP Address?

I'm preparing to open a hosting account with Host Gator and the issue of what they refer to at SEO Hosting has come up.

Until this came up my thoughts were to open a simple Business Plan hosting package for unlimited domains @ $10.36 a month. Now I'm uncertain whether I should continue on with the Business Plan package or look harder at their SEO Hosting Plan. Their entry level SEO Hosting Plan is for five sites with seperate C-Class IP addresses @ $35.00 per month --- not a bank breaker but $$$ I don't want to spend if I don't need to.

If it wasn't for the fact that I'm building a website and a blog that will share cross linking I wouldn't concern myself with the SEO Pakage.

Any insight would be appreciated as I'm clearly out of my element.

Thanks in advance,

Ernie Mitchell

    My advice is to skip it, especially if the domains have common owners. Don't you primarily concentrate on links from outside of domains under your own control? Cross-linking your own domains hasn't had much value for years.

    If you have only the two websites SEO hosting is unnecessary. Use two cheap hosting accounts and you are done. You can get good hosts for $5 per month or less. SEO hosting is chiefly when you are going ten or more sites and running a network.

    SEO hosting is only good for those people who were planning to setup a huge blog network for business (like 15-20+ or even more). One to few websites for SEO hosting is not recommended, so think twice before buying it.

      Greetings Everyone!

      I'm new here and since this subject came up I'd like to ask a question myself from those in the know without starting a new thread.

      I spent some considerable time building and optimizing my site for speed, security and seo, and finally went live a few days ago. I have a vps server that I tweaked for performance and am very satisfied with the results.

      I decided to use CloudFlare, mainly for CDN but also for added security and I like the DNS service more than my domain registrar's.

      The only thing I don't have since using cloudflare is a unique IP address, and I'm wondering if this will impact my future ranking as I'm sharing it with numerous other sites that might be affecting me in a negative way.

      Does anyone else have any experience with this?

    Not worth it in my experience, started out with one then later moved away and did not loose any ranking costs way less. Plus had many problems with seohosting that i never have now.

      Thanks for the insight everyone.

      Your answers make life a little simpler and a little less expensive.

      I should have mentioned that the two sites (blog & website) in questioin will have seperate domains but it doesn't sound like that fact will make much difference anyway given there are just two two sites being cross-linked :confused:

      Thanks Again,

      Ernie Mitchell

    If you have just 2 sites there is very very little or no point in going for a SEO Hosting Plan, however I would highly recommend to avoid addon domains and host the 2 sites on separate cPanel accounts. SEO IP's are more useful when you have like 10++ sites ... those would be good for Mike
