    Default Hosting Questions (700 domains on my server)

    I'm thinking about changing hosts after seeing that the servers I have my sites on have upwards of 700 domains all on the same web server. I used this tool: Reverse IP Lookup - Find Other Web Sites Hosted on a Web Server

    After comparing the web servers of some other strong websites in my niche and them only have around 1 to 15 domains hosted on the same server I'm thinking this isn't a good thing.

    I currently have my sites hosted at lunar pages.

    I'm looking for recommendations on where to move my sites and how to make sure that only my sites are hosted on the same server.

    I've always thought my hosting situation wasn't ideal.

    That said I'm a newbie when it comes to this kind of technical stuff, so I want to make sure I'm making the correct changes here so I won't have to move the sites again.

    All help is very much appreciated!

    Isn't that common on "shared" hosting? I'm not technical either, but I chose VPS as a way to avoid that myself - now only my sites are hosted on my server, at least as far as I know.

    Ya it might be common. The thing is I plugged some other top sites into that same tool I was using and there was nobody hosting their site with 700 other domains.

    I'm going to look into the VPS thing as well.

    Do most people here use shared hosting, VPS, or dedicated server? or is there another method that I should look into?

    Shared hosting: Who knows how many sites that put on one server.
    VPS: Its a slice of a server. Mainly only 3 or 4 people on one server.
    Dedicated server: All yours man, have fun.

    I would be careful when moving all your domains to the same VPS, as they might have all the same IP address. This could be a problem when you interlink between them. But you could move the money sites to a VPS or dedicated hosting and get an unique IP for each domain.

    I think moving from shared hosting to a VPS is a good idea for money sites. For too long I had sites making 1k/months on a 5$/month hosting plan - this is a ratio that is wrong.

    Another argument, which is more important than sharing IPs, is speed and reliability. Your sites will load faster (which should be better for your rankings), and you will have less downtime (which is better for ranking and will make you lose less money). The sites I moved were on Bluehost. Three months later, that server was down for more than 24 hours during a month. Glad I moved before that, the revenues not lost already paid for a part of the higher hosting costs.

    I can't say it's common to have 700 domains on the same server but it's certainly feasible in today's world. You have to know how powerful the server is and how active those domains are, though, in order to determine if you really need to get off the server.

    It comes down to performance and security.

    If your Websites are loading fast you have a good server situation as far as performance is concerned.

    If many of the other domains have been hacked, you have a bad server situation as far as security is concerned.

    If you move your site(s) to a different kind of server you may create performance issues for yourself depending on what your sites try to do. There are a lot of variables in the mix.

    I have noticed a lot of people are complaining about performance coming out of shared services like Bluehost. I'll tell you something here that I have so far only shared with my premium newsletter subscribers.

    A few weeks ago I copied my dedicated server's firewall listings (now around 600) over to the "IP Deny Manager" dashboard on a couple of Bluehost accounts. In reality Bluehost doesn't set up a firewall for you; it just uses that dashboard to update your .htaccess files.

    Still, I saw significant improvements in page load/render times for dozens of domains after blocking the same IP address ranges that I had blocked for my dedicated server. Improvements ranged from 40% to 90% REDUCTIONS (going from, say, 30 seconds to 3 seconds).

    So now when I see people complaining about the poor performance of their shared hosting providers, I suspect the problem really has more to do with botnets probing their sites than anything else. If you have installed Wordpress on your Websites you MIGHT be attracting a lot of botnet probes. It's not guaranteed, though. Even on my dedicated server I have several Wordpress installations and only two of them are consistently targeted by the botnets.

    Most of the rogue crawling is coming from other Web hosting services. That means that millions of blogging installations (not just Wordpress but also Drupal and Joomla and probably everything else) have been compromised because people are not updating their software when their blogging platforms are upgraded.

    The larger Web servers can handle a lot of this rogue traffic but if you move your sites to a smaller server AND if your are already being targeted by the botnets then you'll see a degradation in performance.

    What really pisses me off about a lot of this rogue traffic is that much of it comes from the cloud services that promise to defend your sites against DDoS. They may not be behind the attacks but they are certainly powering those attacks because they don't monitor their own servers for outbound traffic abuse.

    You can use this Website to see just how bad these widespread digital attacks really have become:

    Thats looking at your ip address, buy a dedicated ip and you will see only your sites show up.
