Tranferring my business website to inmotion would it affect my ranking

  • Answered

I want to transfer my business website from my current hosting provider to inmotion hosting. However, i have an important concern...this website is my top source of incoming business/clients and my business (travel industry) is seasonal. The season has already started and i am worried that i might lose my ranking with google, i am now in the top results when someone is searching for some of our services.

I have been told that changing hosting companies might affect ranking with google and if that happens in my case I will lose A LOT OF BUSINESS.

I already have a hosting plan with inmotion that i can add this domain as well, should i do that? or should i have a separate hosting plan just for this domain since its very very important to me not to lose my ranking in the search results??!!?

Please advise ASAP how i should proceed or what you recommend??

Thank you!


Thanks for you for your concern about your current hosting being transferred to InMotion Hosting. Your concern for your ranking is understandable. If there is an interruption in service for a long period of time, then it could be affected. If you're changing any URLs, then you simply need to make sure that you have appropriate 301 re-directs that tell the search engines of the change. Otherwise, there should be no loss of ranking. You can work with our Technical Support team to have the site transferred if you required specific assistance. Pleas see How to request a website transfer for more detail.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
