Best Practice to host a Domain on a VPS

My question: Is hosting a single domain or multiple domain on VPS without plesk/kloxo/virtualmin etc SEO friendly? I mean the domain is actually the masked IP address, so how can we be sure that our site will get good ranking? Any best practice?

  • you can easily assign vhosts their own ip. But for SEO i would be more concerned about page load time, and proper content then about your IP.

    NodePop - OpenVZ 1GB of Ram $4/m - when Prepaid - Native IPv6, IPv4 and we price match

    Eh what? This is an odd question. Why would google care if you had a fancy control panel or you were pounding away at the cli?

    I think I understand what you mean here. You don't want the bare IP address to load your site. So for example:

    example.com should load your super duper website

    192.168.1.1 should load the default apache page

    So yeah enable namevirtualhost. Set the first virtual host to some default directory like /var/www/html or something. And set your site as the second virtual host with servername example.com and serveralias www.example.com.

    Most distros already do this for you. Debian (and ubuntu) has an especially nice way of separating virtual hosts in sites-available which you enable use a2ensite.
