Know Thy Neighbours

The vast majority of people use web hosting services which are shared with hundreds of other web sites.

As explained in Web Site Hosting 101 this can create problems for you if one of your “neighbours” on that shared computer does stupid or bad things!

So it’s probably a very good idea to get to know your neighbours by using the free service provided at myIPneighbors

Just type in your domain name, and be prepared for a surprise! You might find your host has 600, or 700 or even more sites hosted on the same server as you!

The myIPneighbors search is a great way to find out who your neighbors are or just to see how many other websites your hosting company hosts your server.

Find out if your website is packed into a crowded host with hundreds of other sites?

Or is there questionable content being hosted side by side with your site?

If so, it may be time to look for a different host 🙂
