Re: moving domains in new server
Check that the new IP address is not banned for some reason. It may have
previously been used for some spam site. Examine closely other web sites on
the same IP address (if any) and on adjacent IP addresses.
Check that the new IP address is logically in the country of your choice.
Note that many IP addresses came with companies of foreign origin so some IP
addresses do not logically appear to be where they are physically located
now. If your customers are in a particular country you don't want to appear
to be in another country.
Check that the new IP address really is accessible from various places
around the world. See http://www.traceroute.org/ and run traces back, to
see if the new IP is of any use.
Don't choose a new IP address that is similar to ones used at other sites
which you link to or from. If you link with sites on the same or nearby IP
addresses the links may be ignored as probable spamming.
Spiders that work on url names should find your site using the DNS system.
It takes about 48 hours before all the DNS servers update their pointing.
