The IP address where your website is hosted has no effect on SEO. Since we're probably only talking about Google here, I found this link about how Google's PageRank is not affected by your IP address (or more specifically, how many websites are hosted at a given IP address). My own theory as to why this opinion has developed is because larger companies ...

Shared hosting means that there are other sites on the same server you are on sharing things like bandwidth and resources. Dedicated hosting means that you are the only one on the server and all the resources belong to you. Usually dedicated hosting is more expensive, but it provides better performance if you need it.

Shared hosting Pros: Cheap Fully managed by hosting company Cons You are at mercy of other sites poor performance You are in a restricted environment Dedicated hosting Pros: You have full control of the machine You can set up the web server app whatever you want The performance only depends on your apps in the server Cons You have to ...

You can think of the major difference this way: With both, you are paying for root access, but you'll only get complete use of the hardware with a dedicated machine. VPSes can frequently fall victim to one of the huge problems in the hosting business: overselling. At any given moment during the day, the average customer isn't going to be using all of the ...

Processors with more cores use more advanced technology, that's why they're more expensive. If you add up the processing power, then in theory they're faster, but in practice it depends on you using software that works across multiple cores. More power won't mean much unless you're running computationally expensive operations. It's hard to judge if that's ...

You're trying to compare apples to a multi-national supplier of apples and get the latter for the same price as a $60 crate of apples. Amazon's CloudFront offers geographical distribution, tons of fault tolerance, and redundancy. If a drive crashes, your data is probably safe. If the US goes under water, it could be safe as well. With your current ...

You should run WebPagetest on your web page and see where most of the time to render you web page takes place. WebPagetest produces a waterfall diagram that allows you to see where the time to load your page is spent. Here is part of a WebPagetest waterfall diagram and report: For example, if your web page make lots of references to static content and ...

[Disclaimer: I work for one of the companies in the list below] Since your host is going to provide DNS management, it sounds like your needs are: setting up Apache virtual hosts, managing SFTP accounts, and creating MySQL databases and users. Does that sound right? You can definitely set up your sites manually, but life may be easier (and consequently ...

Have you actually got in touch with Spamhaus? They might do white listing on an IP by IP basis. The other option is to change your ISP to one not hosted on a a range that's blacklisted. Edit Have you tried this: http://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/sbl.lasso?query=SBL80808#removal Edit 2 To be completely honest, if you're THAT desperate to get off the spamhaus ...

Dedicated IP addresses have no effect on SEO as IP addresses in no way indicate anything about the content and whether or not it is relevant for a search query. A site on a shared IP that moves to a dedicated IP, or vice versa, is no better or worse because of that IP address. So the IP address won't affect the ranking of pages. IP addresses may be used, ...

Check out the Dedicated Server forum on WebHosting Talk. You could also refer to Gartner reports. You also didn't say whether hosting on particular soil (or other "unusual" requirements are important). But you'll see all those kinds of questions asked over and over again in the WebHosting Talk forums.

I don't agree with my friends Angio. The location of the server does have a meaning, I'm not not saying it's the only factor, but it makes no sense to have a server in the States, for example, when most of your customers are in Europe - cause even if the bandwidth is good and the server is fast (CPU) it will still be inferior - comparing to a server with ...

You are talking about going into Web Hosting biz. Which is good but you need to ask yourself a few questions before that. Are you ready to take up a new biz which will consume your time 24x7? Are you willing to learn and get into a whole new niche which will take up quite a good amount of time for learning? Starting a hosting biz is just the small part, ...

Do I need dedicated server? Can you give me some links? No you don't usually need it unless you have thousands of sites or one extremely huge site. How many domains can I have on my server? Domains usually unlimited (Can be just parked domains), if with the word domains you means sites, then with many hosters are unlimited too, but it's always ...

As a fresh starter what do I exactly need to host my custumers web sites? More then one website... Very subjective, and depends on the needs of their websites, what frameworks they are built on, how much traffic they get, etc. Really hard to say beyond them needing a domain and somewhere to host it. What you seem to be hinting at is a reseller service ...

As Ewan already said. The question is if you can spread the workload over the different cores. If you can then more cores are better. This is under the assumption that you have a lot of concurrent requests. If you have only a few concurrent request but every requests will involve a lot of heavy computing then faster cores are better. What I would recommend ...

my rep is too low to +1 your answer L3viathan but thank you!

this helped me alot. My setup is currently plesk, qmail and mailman. i found that the path for chmod should be /var/lib/mailman more useful. doing a regular chown -hR list:list ./* there ist not too bad. there does /var/lib/mailman/bin/check_perms -f even work. for me. also chown -R popuser:list /var/list/ did a good job for me. ...

You can try this list of Cheap VPS Hosting provider's list. They don't have any straight forward link to compare all the plans, but you still get a very good comparison of various known - unknown VPS providers.

SquareCompare offers a comparison service with a variety of comparison criteria (advertised with them while working for a VPS hosting company). Note: "Virtual dedicated" isn't a common term (remember seeing it first over at Media Temple - it isn't accurate at all if the server resides on shared hardware) so you might get better results if you're asking ...

Technically when it comes to cloud vs. dedicated resources it is important to note that cloud packages also come in public (shared) and private instances so you can't really compare "cloud" to "dedicated" without context. The main difference between cloud and dedicated hosting is that a dedicated plan is just a single server or multiple physical servers if ...

Charles has done a good job of answering most of your question thoroughly. On the last point of cost, it's because the cost of a server is more than just the cost of CPU and memory - there's the case and power supply etc. You can double the memory and add more cores without doubling the cost of the server. You can then set up two VPSs and sell them each for ...

Cloud hosting are very on fashion now, but IMHO I've never been able to understand on their site how much I'm going to spend for a simple hosting plan. Some hosters not selling clouds, but selling plans with a monthly/yearly price written loud and clear on their websites are: http://www.eukhost.com server really in UK, I tried to ping them from UE and I'm ...

It is more important for mail servers and spam than for SEO. Google will obviously assume that all sites on the group are owned and operated by one person or company. That means that if you link from one site to another it doesn't really benefit you. I have about 15 IPs in a row, all different online ventures, and have had no problems. Plus, I think with ...

Most hosts offer dedicated IP address as an add-on for their shared webhosting services. For example, WestHost does, and so does HostGator. The reason almost all web hosts offer dedicated IP addresses is because you have to have a dedicated IP to have an SSL certificate. Your assumption about getting better CPU and RAM bursts verses VPS is not true at all ...

I have several sites hosted on Arvixe, one of those has a MS SQL database nearly 2GB in size and I pay only the "unlimited" fee of $8 a month. The hosting has been pretty stable (certainly worth $8 a month). The admin frontend they have could use some work, it does allow for restoral and backups from and to files you can FTP to the site, but overall I would ...
