I put the pages on a diiferent url to the clients for protection from banning.
However do I need to buy lots of separate "hosting packages" from my virtual hoster or can I stick all the different pages on the same hosting package (to save money) and have many domian names pointing to the same web space? I am trying to avodi the scenario of having all clients suffer if one client is banned.
I am concerned about potential banning by IP (even though I think most banning is done by url?)
I think even if I buy many packages (one for each client) I may end up with the same ip address as they are all on the same server at the hosting company so I am not reducing any banning by ip risk and just wasting money?
Also I dont understand how if a hosting company has the same ip address on a server for many different customers unrelated to me or my clients how does its server knows which website to serve up?
Thanks in advance

The web browser sends the domain name that it's hitting as part of the request, and the server can be configured to look at that instead of the IP.
Generally, I think that sharing one IP among several sites is fine. As you noted, with shared hosting plans, you may be sharing IPs with other customers, anyway.
If you're sending email out from that web server, that's a different story, as email spam filters often block by IP.
