    Changing IP address to another IP address


    Hi, my website hosting company have told me today that they have changed a website from one server (dedicated) to another (shared) with different IP addresses.

    I was not aware of this and went mad with them but do I need to tell them to do 301 redirects on all the URLS. the site loss rankings and Page ranks due to it being on a new server / IP address?

    No it is not, you will only do 301 redirects if there are changes in the URL structure.
