No-IP vs. Page Ranking
I was wondering if anybody could tell me if it makes a real difference page ranking wise if you own your own domain name or use a host through a company like No-IP?
EXAMPLE: http://mydomain.com vs. http://mydomain.no-ip.com
Thanks in advance for any replies.
Your own domain name may get high page rank respect to using host domain name. If you use host domain name then your website's URL will be sub-domain and it gets low page rank.
mydomain.no-ip.com counts as a sub domain which also effect the page rank. always use your own domain
It would be much better to have your own domain and a lot easier to rank.
It would be much better to have your own domain name rather than a subdomain. It would be a lot easier to get your site ranked higher all things being equal.
I believe that there is no difference is ranking but owning a domain name is much better to have perspective
Your own domain name would be better for creating backlinks and increase your page rank.
Like the others have stated having your won own IP is more advantageous.
As far as direct marketing is concerned, the answer is no. However, page rank is essential if you want to establish real and strong online connections. So if you think in perspective, page rank counts.
It's still recommended if you buy and use your own domain. Also you are not limited to do anything on your site as long as it's your own.
I think that page rank don't depends on domain or subdomain, it only depends on number of links and page rank & outbound links on those linking pages. Subdomain is like just a different domain so there can't be different algorithm in Search engines for deciding page rank.

If you don't own your own domain then you have only one option to create blogs using blogspot.com, wordpress etc.
But using your own domains would give you lots of flexibilities and make wonderful sites if you have designing skill.
I am suggesting you to use your domain rather than using another host so that you can get higher page rank of site.
