Google maps API and IP

 4:54 pm on Jun 24, 2008 (gmt 0)

I've read on google map help pages that there is a limit of 15k calls to google maps per ip/day.

If I have two or more sites that use google maps and I have a different ip for each do you think google would regard that as cheating and possibly cancel their service, that they can at any time for any reason under their agreement?

I was thinking of doing this (buying seperate ip for each site) in case I would ever move or sell them.

A different IP is a different IP. If you were using 1 IP for www1.example.com and anither IP for www2.example.com, which are basically the same site, then it might start getting into a gray area. But different IPs for completely different sites should be no issue.

Thanks, I checked the Google map forum (as I should have done first) and find that many have the reverse problem, would like to use only one IP on many domains, so that's not an issue.

But if I make a site with google maps and then sell it, I understand the new owner has to register/use a new key (algorithmic code that google map provides).

Is is difficult to change that key so the sites google maps would continue to work and not have to be made over? Or am I totally misunderstanding this again?

getting a key is fairly easy and you only have to edit the key once in each page or template that generates your GMaps content.

I believe that the 15k limit is just for geocoding requests only isnt it?
