IP address

As long as your domain stays the same, changing hosting companies or changing your IP address shouldn't affect your site's listing in Google News. We recommend following these steps when migrating a site to a new IP address:

  1. Bring a copy of your site up at the new IP address.
  2. Update your nameserver to point to the new IP address.
  3. Once you see search-engine spiders fetch pages from the new IP address (typically within 24-48 hours), it's safe to take down the copy of your site at the old IP address.
