Question on website hosting

I have bought some new domains and want to start building websites for them. I am thinking of hosting them on my ordinary Hostgator account for now (to save money) and then down the track getting a Resellers' account and transferring them to this. My question is, will Google "remember" that they were together when they are transferred to their new separate hosting?

really, it won't matter that much as far as rankings or anything like that.

I was not thinking in terms of rankings. Risk-minimisation is the issue. I have heard about a few people who have had all their sites that were hosted on a shared account de-indexed in one hit. But if there is no connection between them (ie. different IP addresses and no shared Google Analytics account), Google can't punish all your sites if it doesn't like what you're doing on one of them.

REally, I have all my sites on 2 GA accounts, and I haven't seen other sites affected by something on another.

Usually, if a shared hosing account gets slapped all at once, its because google sees some REALLY bad black hat SEO going on from that IP address They wouldn't do it if just one or two sites on that IP address had it going on. But I see people with these shared hosting accounts doing HUNDREDS of sites, and doing all these black hat methods to drive traffic. When Google Sees that, they may blacklist the IP adress.
. if you follow the training Mark lays out, it won't ever be a problem.

Also, some people start crying about sites being deindexed because their rankings dropped off the front page. Rankings dropping and a site being deindexed are two totally different subjects, but some people smash them together, because they dont really track what is actually going on.


One thing to keep in mind with a standard HG resellers account, not every site will be on a separate IP. it is still a shared hosting account. You are assigned 20 IP adresses as a reseller, and your accounts will be divided among these IP addresses, based on the Packages that you set up when you create them.

The main benefit of Resellers account for me is having separate Cpanels. If I am running a script that I need some tech support with, they don't have access to ALL of my sites, but just the one site with the problem.

I also find that having a resellers accouunt speeds up site loading times a little. shared hosting will slow it down some, although I hear they have gotten better about that ( I don't know, been on resellers for almost 2 years now...)

Most resellers accounts are also shared accounts so Google would look at both accounts the same way.
