Using Ip Address Instead Of Domain Name

And Google does index IP addresses. My school for example only has an IP address and it's included in Google. I'm not sure if Inktomi does though.

My plan is to store the personal pages on the server where I'm currently paying to have a business site hosted. However, I don't want the company name to be associated with the personal pages.
Does anyone know if Inktomi/MSN will display IP addresses in their results?
Thanol, Thanks for the confirmation regarding Google and IP addresses.

It's worth it!

That said, I don't think the engines have a problem with it. It just seems kinda silly though.

No, that's the whole point behind using the IP address. I already pay for hosting of my business site, so I will upload and have my pages served from there. I just don't want the business domain name to be associated with my personal pages (and vice versa).
Even if you use an IP, you still have to pay for hosting, right?

What if you could get a free domain name with your hosting account that would include everything you could want for say $70 a year. Would that help?
I want to use an IP instead of a name because I am the ultimate cheapskate and don't want to pay for hosting and a domain name.
I might know someone that could do this.
Is this inappropriate mods

Using the IP will disassociate the two from casual observers, but you should probably be aware of how easy it will be for anyone with the desire to tie the two together. The domain name, after all, is nothing but a thinly veiled alias for the IP. Not sure of your intent, but thought you should know ...
I just don't want the business domain name to be associated with my personal pages (and vice versa).

If someone types in just the IP address without the page reference it will take them to the index page of your business site.
I would assume that your personal pages would be indexed by Google as a part of you business site, since they both have the same IP address and are not otherwise differentiated, so if your personal pages are not linked from your business pages might be considered doorway pages.

If you do everything as cheap as possible, the search engines will notice this too.
Which sites get the higher rankings you think?

MarketSeeker, where can I find this inexpensive hosting service?

Eg. You become a reseller and pay lets say $30/month.
If you know a couple people that want websites you can host say 3 additional sites for $10/month and break even. Free quality hosting.
Hope that helps.
