We're going through this transition right now for two reasons. On to test the theory that it can help with Seach rankings per the theory in googles algorithm, which we'll test, and secondly the 'super bowl' host, we've used them for years and have found issues with the performance of their servers. Very slow, support won't admit to this, and about a year ago our account and many other accounts on the same server was hacked....which the host denied over and over, though we had proof.
The primary reason though is for seeing if we can improve search rankings for one site and improve the performance of the site load time.
Our approach is to replicate the site over to the new host, test, test, test, and when ready, update the DNS to point to the new host.
