Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
- make sure that the site still works at the old IP
- bring up the site at the new IP as well
- switch the DNS to the new IP
- when we see googlebot visiting the new IP, shut down the site at the old IP
Please advise if this is the safest way to go?
Thanks for your help
I'm currently on a shared IP at my host, but am looking to get an SSL cert for my domain.
Reading up on my hosts site, it will mean me moving to a new unique IP address for the SSL to be installed etc.
They've confirmed it will be within the same server farm that I'm currently hosted in.
Can you think of any issues this may cause?
Presume I'll just need to follow the steps that Matt blogged?
