SEO Hosting is a type of web hosting that improves the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) of a website—with the purpose of increasing the searchability of the site, thus generating more sales.
To do this, an SEO Hosting provider will host a client’s websites on unique C-blocks of IP addresses. This allows multiple websites run by the same webmaster(s) to interlink while being ranked independently by search engines. Therefore, SEO Hosting is much more beneficial to entities with a few or many websites.
Why Is Hosting Your Websites on Different C-Blocks Beneficial?
On a typical web server a website is given an IP address that looks like this 192.168.1.0.
IP addresses (using the IPv4 standard) are divided into 5 classes:
- Class A
- Class B
- Class C
- Class D
- Class E
In other words: A.B.C.D.E
Websites hosted on a web server inside a data center are generally on servers with the same Class C IP. E.g:
If you own multiple websites and would like to link between them, search engines will recognize that they are hosted on the same C-Block and therefore only the first link will be ranked.
If those websites are hosted on different C-Blocks, then all the links will be ranked independently will be much easier to search for.
When you decide on hosting with Class C IP Address, you are guaranteed that you would be provided data centers that may be found in different sections around the globe thereby allowing you to have multiple Class C IP Addresses.
What Are the Benefits of SEO Hosting?
Being hosted on different C-Blocks is the fundamental definition of SEO Hosting, but that’s not all it can offer.
SEO Hosting can also benefit your website in the following ways:
Search engines, like Google, rank websites via their IP address’s geographical location. The more relevant the geographical location of your IP address is to the content on your site, the higher the website will rank in the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), or the first 10 or so websites the search engine pulls up.
Since we can host your websites on multiple IPs in different locations, your websites can benefit from international search—if setup correctly.
Much in the same manner as International SEO, Local SEO is great for websites with local IP addresses to rank higher on local SERPs.
Avoiding Being at the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
Hosting your website in the traditional manner can make you seem guilty by association. If another website on the same C-Block has done some unsavory things, then the whole C-Block can be penalized by search engines. This causes all the websites on that C-Block to be unnecessarily punished for the actions of one website.
Since your website will be hosted on unique C-Blocks with SEO Hosting, then there’s no worry about being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
