Have any of you guys ever switched a website and its domain from one server/host to another?
Is it easy?

Cheers!

Hi Shaun,

Yes it is relatively simple as long as you get all the steps in the right order! :)
Here's a handy guide from Matt Cutts - Moving to a new web host

Is it a static site or database driven/dynamic site you're referring to Shaun?

No problems Shaun, there's lots of guides around on this, so with the DB sites if they're running a popular script/CMS like Wordpress for example just search for 'moving host wordpress site' etc. I think the main priority is making sure you have working backups of the site files and any databases, although sure you knew that :)
