We have a site which is global in its nature and hosted on a US server.

We are considering moving it onto a New Zealand server (where we are geographically based) and rebranding it as a local site.

Any ideas on the least disruptive way to make this move if we do go ahead?

Google's Matt Cutts wrote a blog article back in 2005 that has lots of good advice. In fact, we've got a link to this post in the Hot Topics area [webmasterworld.com], which is always pinned to the top of this forum's index page.
