To answer your question directly: No, in most cases there is no negative impact for sharing an IP with a bad domain. How do I know this? I am the SEO oracle. I come from the future to save humanity. Kidding, but only sort-of. If there was such a thing as IP penalization, we would be seeing far far different search results than what we do today because many ...

To complete the other answers, there is no authoritative database of complete IP -> name mappings. DNS provides for two kinds of mappings: name -> IP. Multiple names can map to a single IP IP -> name (aka "reverse"). A given IP can map only to a single name.

You could use a service that does "reverse IP lookup" to check for websites hosted on the same server / the same IP address.

In such a case, most hosts will (for some reason) allow SSL on the main shared IP, which means the first person who gets an SSL gets all the traffic for any account also on the server. They do this on purpose even though there are ways to ...

The IPv4 is not relevant to your rankings. Some hosting provider only allow registration of new IPv4 IP addresses for virtualization, a single website is not a valid reason to book a single IPv4.

If you can create high quality sites, provide great user experience, and take care not to violate any of Google's webmaster guidelines, there is no problem with having multiple sites on a shared host. With that being said, your sites sound like they could be spammy. You sound like you are at risk of violating the policy against doorway pages. The example ...
