    having multiple domains under one hosting

    when you have more than one domain under your hosting plan (i am sure most of you guys do) , does it create a disadvantage to the websites under/other than the main hosting domain name? (main domain: the domain you use for logging in to your ftp). i ask in terms of SEO or any other aspect

    of course all are separate websites but still i ask if you can think of a disadvantage for the ones that are not the login domain... or all should be equal - like i believe?

    Yes, It's a disadvantage to host many webs under the same hosting name.

    It has both advantage and disadvantages.

    the advantages - you can manage all your domains at one place and cost of hosting for all domains will reduce. No effect in terms of SEO activities but you have to follow the SEO rules when you creating backlinks never give backlinks for website which are hosted in same IP address(i.e. on same hosting panel - it will comes under A to B linking - spamming).

    Disadvantages - Never use nulled themes and plugins due toi those the virus will effect in all the website in that hosting panel.

    Depends on whether it is shared hosting or a VPS. I exclusively go with VPS these days. I find them easier to set up than a CPanel hosting too despite the taboo around them of being too tought to figure out. In Digital Ocean for example, you create a new 'droplet' for each new site and one doesn't affect the other. I suggest you split your sites on different accounts though for ease of maintenance and security reasons. If you account gets hacked, your entire basket with all the eggs comes crashing. Plus it's a mess to maintain too. Or let's say when youre selling the site you could again compromise security. So instead use a password manager and split up the sites on different accounts in future.
