I have been at my current webhost for 5 years, and to be honest they have been very good. Until a day ago, when they announced they were closing down their old data centre and moving to a new one. Yup - in just over a week, they plan to physically unplug my 2 dedicated servers and haul them over to Kansas. Ouch! Our servers will be offline for up to 24 hours.
On top of all this, they plan on giving me new IP addresses. Now, one of my servers has 7 IPs on 6 different class C blocks, and I fear I will be given new IPs on the same class C. This server has 40 or so domains, with some very moderate interlinking between them.
What would you do in my situation?
a) Get a new host as soon as possible (even if they can't get the nice IP spread)
b) Get ONLY a host that can provide the same class C spread (not that easy by my first accounts, though there are some dodgy 'SEO hosting' types out there)
c) Relax and have a beer - for sure it will all turn out right
