As with most things, time is the factor. In the above, I'd not worry over much. Give it three to six weeks... Bing and Yahoo are most aggressive in "hunt" with G right behind. And that's not a bad time line considering a change in hosting... and could be shorter if the DNS is separate.

Changing hosting to a different country could have a significant long-term effect. Even after the rankings return and are stabilized, they could be quite different from what they were before.

Thanks guys. A short update: Traffic is picking up again; the main key-words and phrases rank well again, but I am still behind my expected "normal" traffic. I am relieved to see strong signs of recovery, though. And bot activity is mad right now.

Yet another update: Now both sites seem to be back to normal, a relief for me and hopefully a lasting state.

For those who were interested: After going up to normal levels, the traffic stayed there. Lucky me.

Just had a major outage due to a screwed up line upgrade. The SE traffic seems to have come back online almost immediately but Google Webmaster Tools is still giving a borked DNS not found error but I don't think that WMT operates in realtime anyway. Microsoft/Bing, Yahoo and Yandex reappeared as if nothing had happened.
