Shared hosting and blacklists


#1

Considering sticking with shared hosting, or moving to a VPS.
I’ve read that among the downsides of shared hosting is sharing the same IP with other sites. If one of those sites gets their IP blacklisted, your site suffers too.

Does using Cloudflare help avoid this problem, or not?

I guess you’re talking about email? Possible that the shared IP gets listed if someone sends mails though it.

You CF IPs are shared as well and stupid DNS BLs may list it as well. But I’ve not seen a lot of that listings yet.
