Here's what I've got:
- siteA.com and siteB.com are hosted on hostgator. They're hosted on the same account of a shared hosting server (not VPS or dedicated).
- script.php is an external site that each of these 2 sites are accessing.
I noticed that when
siteB.com access the outside
script.php, the script identifies them both as
1a.12.12ab.static.theplanet.com (apparently because hostgator uses theplanet.com servers). The fact that they're identified as the same value isn't surprising because after all they're hosted on the same account
What I'm wondering about is how about other websites that are hosted on the same shared hosting server, but under other accounts. Basically other websites that are under another developer's control, but just happen to share the same hardware (hosting server). Do they also have the exact same identifier
1a.12.12ab.static.theplanet.com or that changes by account?
