Should we host the websites in geographically dispersed different IPs?

I have one question related to domain names, website hosting and SEO. Well, many people do re-seller shared hosting, on which lots of domains are hosted on single IP. Re-seller hosting or keeping multiple domain names, saves the money.

My question is that if we host suppose 10 domains at same IP, does it not appreciated by Google/SEO? Should we keep C Class IP different for our domains? That means, we need take hosting accounts with multiple companies and have our geographically dispersed hosting?

Thanks for pointing these posts.

We use to care about it some 5-7 years now, so nowadays it doesn't matter to have my 10 websites at shared hosting?

Any official Google documentation about this thing?

Generally, no. I wouldn't worry about it, as long as you're not doing anything spammy and you're with a reputable hosting company.

The only 'official' word I could find was this webmaster video: Can a spammy website affect the ranking of other sites hosted on the same server? [youtube.com]
