Title: Dedicated IP address vs. Dedicated Server
Post by: AnnaB on 09-07-2014, 20:55:17
Hi, I have 13 domains being hosted under a single IP address/same server. It is not a dedicated server or a dedicated IP address. It is basic hosting through GoDaddy. Two of the sites (domains) get a high amount of traffic- when I mean high I mean about 300-400 impressions per day plus maybe 15 clicks per day. I do advertising and PR for my husband's law firm and am a novice at SEO and web design. Over the last year, I have learned a lot though and love to learn more when I have the time.  My question is- I got an error message from Google on my webmaster account this evening saying that when Google Bots tried to access the one site, they timed out and received no response from the DNS - GoDaddy. The issue, they think, was caused by too many domains being on one shared account. Should I look into getting a dedicated IP address for all domains and also getting a dedicated server? do I have to do both or is one more important for SEO? We do not need an SSL cert as we don't do any e-commerce. Our sites are informational only. Thank you all for your time and help.
