Hi guys:)

I have a question regarding a dedicated IP and letting all domains expire in an account over time. The content was created and indexed. Also, had some redirects that went to some domains. For example, i bought site "A" and also 4 other domains for it and redirected them to the main site. Did that same thing for a few other domains.

Nothing blackhat or unethical, just a redirect that was provided by a registar. All redirects were turned off
awhile back. The sites were indexed with the redirects on just fine for all domains.


Here's where i need some help,
In this account it is a Dedicated IP with All these domains.

Now, say for instance that i have had a some domains in this account over the years that i have let All the domains expire over the years. I basicaly only created the content and got it indexed in the engines and then let them expire one by one over time.

But i never did much more than that for them.

I basicly let them sit in that account.
Will that raise a red flag to the engines as a server/account that is doing something blackhat since all the domains are just being let to expire over time and i never marketed them at all.

I did Not do anything wrong though in this account.
I just never got around to marketing them. All the domains were just indexed and then later they just were let to expire in this dedicated IP account.

All the domains were in an account that had a 1 dedicated IP for the sites, so i'm wondering If the search engines will think something blackhat about this account.

I ask because i have deleted all the domains in the acount, and i want to Add a New domain in this account and market this new domain with this Dedicated IP and get it indexed and ranked in the engines,

But i'm a little concerned with SEO, and getting the site to the top for it's kws because maybe the engines will view this account and dedicated IP as not so good and then maybe raise a red flag of some sort.

I do not want any issues to present themselves so that's why i ask you more experienced marketers:)

Please help:) And only answer if you are sure of the answer and Not just a wild guess.

Thanks for the help guys:)
