Developing 10+ domains / sites. both personal and business

Hi Guys,

So I plan to develop 10+ domains / sites over the next few months. Basically I am starting over from scratch with my business and personal branding. I am just curious about one time. It has been over two years since I took a hiatus from the Internet and social media.

Because I plan to develop multiple sites, both personal sites (about me) and business sites (about my business and brands, etc.) my question is this.. for SEO purposes should I buy multiple web hosting plans?

Let me elaborate further.. right now I only have one web hosting plan pre-paid for 3 years with HostGator shared hosting (any opinions on them for SEO?). All 10+ of these sites should be relatively small / low traffic web sites all running Drupal. I like Drupal, although I am also wondering if maybe I should switch to Wordpress? I notice many people are using Wordpress these ideas.

But I am curious for SEO purchases if it would make sense to have my brand / business sites on one shared hosting and perhaps have my personal sites on my HostGator account? The reason I ask is because I plan to have hyperlinks between my personal sites and my business sites. So I wonder if having ALL 10+ of these domains on one shared hosting plan with HostGator would be smart or stupid? Or if for SEO it would significantly make a different to have some personal sites with HostGator.. a few business sites hosted by another host.. and a couple more sites hosting with a third host?

I don't mind doing this.. I'm only worried about paying for 2 - 3x web hosting plans at the same time. BUT if it would help me with SEO, ranking, etc. then I will just spend the money.

Please help me with any insights into this because I plan to start developing these sites ASAP! I want to do this the best way possible as these aren't sites for earning web sites, these will be web sites that will represent me / personal experiences and my real life businesses. Thank you for any help with this!
