      Dear P Priyadarshana. I have one. Be informed that the terms of use,  though indirectly, forbid anyone from having multiple accounts.
      Check the part written permitted use in the TOS. It says that "HubPages, in its sole discretion and at any time, may change, remove, reclaim, and/or reassign the screen name/username and/or subdomain name associated with Your Author account (this potentially includes but is not limited to a trademark owner complaining about a screen name/username/subdomain name that does not closely resemble Your real name)." The TOS also says that "You may not transfer or assign Your HubPages Earnings Program account to any other person and/or entity." Hope that is helpful.

        Incorrect. You can have multiple accounts, as long as you don't write on the exact same topics or use them for spam/sockpuppets. Check the FAQ.

      It is not against the TOS to have more than one HP account.  You can have more than one if you have a few niches for example and want to focus one account on each niche. 

      What you can't do is sign up with multiple accounts to spam the forums, etc. You need to stick to one identity there, but yes, for writing hubs you can indeed have more than one account. 

      Keep in mind, you'll have to reach minimum payout on each account though to get paid.  If you are only writing on a couple of niche topics, it may be best to just stick to one ID in my opinion.  Of course, I don't consider myself an expert in that regard at all - so do your research first. 

      I personally stick to one account.

      There is no specific rule against having multiple accounts as some people have mentioned.

      In addition to the sock puppet issue, another problematic situation is having multiple promotional accounts and if one gets banned, then they can all be banned.

      I have only one account so far and I think that is enough to express yourself.

    I think it would do you more harm than good. Better to have a single account and reap optimal benefits.

    I think I have 5 or 6 other accounts.

    It's perfectly fine to have more than one account, as long as you are doing it within TOS to do so.  I have two accounts, though I don't think I have been on the other one in about two years.  I have only written a few hubs on that one, and kind of started it as an experiment.  Maybe I should check that one...

    I have four.  As mentioned, it is entirely within the terms of use to do so.

    I have danced with the idea, but never taken it on a date. So to speak.

    I only have 1, but I have been seriously thinking about starting different niche accounts. I think I might do better at Google.

    I have two accounts.  My main one gets no traffic and the other one gets slightly less.

      I guess 'sticking' to one or two accounts is best.

    I have one - I think if I had more than one I would never reach a payout on any of them.
