Will Switching Server Hosts Affect my Search Engine Rankings?

Not if you’re making a like for like swap to a server with similar resources.If you’re moving from a dedicated server to a shared or VPS solution, for example, then you won’t see any immediate impact, but if Google finds your site to be slower in the future, you’ll lose user experience points and potentially see your rankings suffer, too.

Best practice when switching hosts is to leave your site live with the old host for around a month, just to be sure the DNS propagates and you can check your site is being crawled on the new server without any problems.
