Will Switching Hosts Affect my Rankings?

In an ideal world, there should be no affect to your site’s rankings in search engines from switching to a new website host provider. However, I would advise to leave your site up on the old server for 3-4 weeks to ensure that the DNS propagates properly across your entire website, and that search engines are indexing the pages with the new hosting company.

Theoretically, once you see the results and the spiders entering into your new hosting, it is probably safe to remove the old hosting from your domain. In doing so, you might actually see an increase in ranking if your new website’s hosting is more stable, and delivers quicker pages as this could enhance SEO and user metrics to your website.
