Urgent Expert’s Reverse IP Domain Checker tool will take a domain name and search for other sites known to be hosted on that same web server.
All web sites are hosted on web servers, and each web server typically has a single IP address. These web sites are associated with domain names (i.e. apple.com) that are easier for users to remember than numeric IP addresses.
Majority of domains names share their IP addresses (i.e. their web servers) with one or more additional domains, meaning most web sites are hosted on servers that host many other web sites. While IP sharing is typically transparent to ordinary users, it may cause complications for both search engine optimization and web site filtering.
All popular search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.) increase a web site's rank based on the backlinks the site has accrued. Bad SEO tactics led to individuals creating hundreds or thousands of dummy web sites with thin content to link to a specific domain name.
Search engines like Google have detected this via multiple methods, and one being by seeing if inter-linking web sites are hosted on the same IP address. If the web sites are in the same IP address range, it is highly likely that they are operated by the same individual. Search engines devalue links from web sites pointing to other web sites hosted on the same IP address range.
For most web sites, having a dedicated unique IP address will have little to no effect on search engine rankings. Matt Cutts, the head of Google's Web Spam team, stated:
"If you are an average webmaster and just running a few sites, I wouldn't worry about them being on the same IP address and I definitely wouldn't worry about them being on the same server. That's something that everybody does."
Use the Urgent Expert Reverse IP Domain Checker tool to check a domain to spot a list of reverse domains and to avoid any potential problems related with IP address sharing, it is best to acquire a unique IP address for your web site. Contact your web host and tell them you would like your own unique IP address.
