View Full Version : ?multiple domains baby plan hostgator!

12-30-2009, 12:48 PM

I've just signed-up to a baby plan with Hostgator, and wasn't expecting that their 'unlimited domains,' actually meant one 'primary domain,' with unlimited sub or addon domains!

Hosgator suggests that this is not important, as each domain will be seen by the web as a totaly independent website.

Whilst this may be true, are their any downsides, particularly with link popularity/page rank etc? Would they be seen by search engines as interlinked in any way unless I purposely created links between them?

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you do not crosslink it'll be meaningless as it is very common for domains to share IPs. There are likely hundreds or even thousands of sites owned by others that share your IPs.

If you do heavy cross linking though, then that could raise some red flags. It doesn't necessarily mean something automatic, but it would certainly raise red flags, and could result in the link benefit being less than you might want.
