    Sure. If your website hosting is slow, it can definitely affect your SEO. Same thing will also apply if your hosting is down for half of the month, every month. A reliable and fast host is important for your website's SEO for sure.

    Speed is the major factor as stated by HostLeet.

    Also, having a dedicated IP makes a little difference.

    Hosting your website in the same country where your main customers are can help with getting more local traffic from search engines, etc.

    The biggest factors you should worry about on the hosting side for this are reliability and performance of your website. Many people will say a dedicated IP is important, but in all honesty it is generally just a waste of IP addresses, which in terms of IPv4 are a rather limited resource right now. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv4_address_exhaustion

    Other than that, you of course want to look at the more website related factors - you want solid content and back-links.

    If your web site is always down so SE bots can't access that and check - that will hurt your SEO.
    So web hosting play role for SEO. Uptime is the most important.

    Agreed. Better ensure your host is fast and always up than waste IP adresses on it.

    I will say yes.
    IP address will have a little minor affect on your SEO. Wihch offshore ip address would be benefit your offshore PR.
    Hosting that cause your website loading slow also will affect the SEO.
    Slow loading speed and high bounce rate of a website will be classified as a bad website from search engine.

    I think if dedicated IP can help a litter on SEO, then it worth the money to buy it.
    Google even take bounce rate into ranking? How can Google get the information about bounce rate?

    If the servers are properly configured and use good control panel such as cPanel etc and maintain good uptime then they should be good for SEO.

    Another fact that effect your SEO ranking are the Geo IP location, which may effect your local SE rankings. So its good to have your sites hosted where your target market is.

    Of course, role of website hosting is really very essential for SEO. Make sure that the webhosting company guarantees for good uptime and unlimited bandwidth.

    Your web host as a company has nothing to do with SEO. What does matter are a few things others have mentioned such as up time, location, speed and many other factors. Location of the server isn't the most important thing if your traffic is global. Unlimited bandwidth doesn't matter in the least and will not affect your SEO ranking. Having a dedicated ip address can have minor benefits but again, it will not make a huge impact on your SEO.

    Back links are good but also where they come from is a factor. If you have several back links from PR1 rated sites it will not help as much as having back links from PR6 rated sites. High ranking and high traffic sites that link back to your site will have a higher impact. Speed is important but it cannot be 100% related to your host. Your host could have extremely good service and high end servers with a fast upstream. This does not guarantee your site is going to rank high. If your site software is poorly coded and is slow itself it won't matter what host you use. If your sites software isn't coded for good SEO then having an SEO host with Class C ip's isn't going to help you either. If your hosts servers crash a lot and are offline for several days then that will be a huge factor in SEO since search engines can't find the site.
    You also have to take some responsibility for your own site. If your host is online, fast, secure and your traffic is very high and your site is putting a load on the server and slowing it down then you may need to consider making sure your site is running on a server to support your needs. As your site grows you may need to upgrade to vps, then dedicated and so on.

    Shared IP address is kinda thought to be bad from SEO point of view as well.

    Having a shared ip address isn't going to do much with your SEO. What is bad is if you have several sites on the same ip address and they all link each other. That actually isn't bad, but Google may look at it as a group of sites trying to gain rank by linking several sites.

    This is not true at all.

    Google treat shared IP's the same way they treat dedicated IP's. This was confirmed by Matt Cutts several times since 2003.

    Maybe google will treat shared ip the same as dedicated ips but for sites linked each other under the same IP will get less weight comparing to those under dedicated ips.

    Having a dedicated IP has no affect at all,
    The class of the shared IP certainly does though.
    The biggest effect is from unique content and real linking.
