Just trying to decide whether I want to switch over from many different hosts to a dedicated server with a cluster of ip's.
Having everything on one server would sure make life easier, but a little more expensive.
One main concern I have is whether SE's actually look at the whois record (for my theming purposes) . If the dedicated server has contiguous ip's it would be pretty easy to determine that these sites are from the same person (entity). Having them spread out over different hosts and in different names would seem to show the SE's that the sites are relevant as they are coming from different ip's etc.
To sum up, are there any pluses or minuses for having contiguous ip's to establish themes?
Anyone have any experience, knowledge or thoughts on this?
