View Full Version : DNS and ip ranges
12-04-2006, 01:59 PM
Maybe someone here knows what i'm talking about:
When 2 websites with almost the same content were put at 1 server, so in 1 ip range.. they will be seen as 1 website.
I would like to add 1 of them to an other DNS server, so the first ip a search engine will see is another one comparing to the other server..
Does someone know how far a search engine like google looks at the ip ranges? I'll configure the website by adding the domain to a A record..
Thanks a lot for the answer!

I've already got some of the information by the search option in this forum:
It says 2 different ip ranges will help 2 see the websites as different websites, but google will always look at dns information..
How much does google see of this dns info? Do they see the A record is linked to another server?
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the forum. I don't know; the problem is that you've already had too similar sites on the same IP and that's possibly raised a flag. Are both sites indexed fully? Google apparently do look for sites on the same IP or same class C IP, and they possibly also check whois info too as they're a registrar - they could get the A record I suppose but the issue here is that you may be too late to move one of the sites. Find out how many pages of each are indexed and get back too us.

They are not indexed at all, i'm talking about new websites.. but i know because of other websites of my company that google will see 2 websites with the same subject as 1 website if it's on the same server..
I'll try to get this:
1 domain on the majorserver.
1 domain on the dns server, linking with a A record to the majorserver and send thru with PHP to some part of the website.
In that way every part of the main website will have it's own domain.. but therefor i'll need to know if google can see what the A record is, or will he only see the dns server.. thinking the website is on that server..

I think that as long as you have unique content and meta tags on each page as well as good inbound links to each you will be OK.
One thing that often gets overlooked is that Google views each page independently. The reason you shoot for a whole domain is because you link the domain together. That way the PR will filter down to other pages.
