Thanks for the feedback guys :)
Philosopher - "As for "revamping your site". What are you planning on doing? Just a cosmetic redesign? Will navigation, page names change or stay the same?"
My site is currently with SBI in Canada, and it was built to their design using in-system templates. Basically, once I switch hosts the site will no longer exist as it only works on their platform.
It has about 200 + pages of good content, so I was simply going to spend time (a lot of time) copying and pasting the body text from each page into a new site in dreamweaver, maintaining the same structure, but with a fresh look and feel.
I can't see any other way around it.
I need to switch because they are hosting in Canada which is hurting my UK search ranking (as mentioned by contractor) and it also has canonical url problems and they don't allow 301 redirects.
It was great when I first started, but as I gained more knowledge I began to pick up holes in their system, so now it's time to move on.
