How to Select Reliable PBN Hosting for Your Private Blog Network Sites
I’m often asked what criteria I look for to determine whether a host is good for your PBN or not.
To shade a light on this widely requested matter, I’ve listed below my top 5 questions that I’m asking myself every time I consider to add another solid PBN hosting to my network.
#1 How easy it is to use?
For me, ease of use is an essential factor to consider when choosing a PBN host. A lot of hosts these days are still using cPanel or WHM interfaces.
To be frank, even though I’m familiar with every pixel of that interface, it is just annoying to manage all the sites from separate cpanel accounts. I’m looking for a user-friendly dashboard that is housing all my PBN sites.
In addition to aesthetically-pleasing dashboards, having automation features is also a big advantage.
For busy people (like me), having automatic updates of all the scripts, periodical backups, and other bulk management features are a godsend.
#2 How much it will cost me?
Once you start adding up more network sites, it shouldn’t surprise you that web hosting expenses get quite pricey. So I try to find a balance between the sea of available web hosting options and stick to more affordable options for my PBN sites.
The trick is to find hosts that will offer their services for around $2-3 per IP for lower amount of IPs and gradually decrease the price per IP the more IPs you add to your account.
Based on personal experiences, I recommend avoiding hosts under $1 or over $3 for PBN sites. The former tends to be undependable, while the latter is a bit too costly.
Now that we’ve gotten those out of the way, let me take you through the more technical criteria.
#3 Are there any footprints?
This can sound a bit conspicuous, but I still find it important to address.
If you want to stay calm and never worry about your network sites being deindexed, make sure your host isn’t leaving any footprints on server headers, DNS, IPs, etc.
Even the platform itself your host using should be devoid of any footprints.
#4 How diverse the provided IPs are?
The IPs your Private Blog Network hosting uses, should be registered through various independent hosting providers that actually host sites themselves.
Those IPs should come from diverse data centers and have different “A”, “B”, and “C” blocks.
Simply put, the host should offer a good number of “A”, “B”, and “C” block IPs to give you some good diversity. Stay away from those that are just proxied from a single server or don’t do any of the hosting themselves.
Majority of so-called SEO hosts are doing exactly the latest. So be aware!
#5 Who is supplying nameservers?
Solid and reliable PBN hosting should not be the one providing the nameservers. This makes it look unnatural and is easily traceable.
Basically, a solid host will use other hosts to supply nameservers that ideally that are in use by popular DNS providers.
These are my most important questions that I ask while considering new host for my blog networks. Below, I listed some of my recommended web hostings for PBNs that I personally use in my business on daily basis.
