Search engines follow pages, not servers. Moving mydomain.com from aaa.aa.aaa.a to bbb.bb.bbb.b will not change your ranking. (Moving the interesting content from mydomain.com/folder/subfolder/subsubfolder/page.htm to mydomain.com/page.htm might, but that's another topic for another time.)

Your ranking is much more a matter of the "chunkiness" of your content and the "value" of the in-links. As far as I know, your server's IP address matters not a whit.
