    No there isn't any SEO effect, unless, of course, it is even slower.

    If the site speeds up a bunch SH then the Google gods may bless it LOL. The host itself does not effect SEO but if your website performs a bunch better, site speed is a factor in Google's algorithm. Indirect effect buddy.

    It should be fine, I've transferred hundreds of sites over the years and rarely are there any SEO issues.

    Not really, except you choose an old hosting which associated with some spamming activies; and the loading speed. Loading speed is an SEO factor - remember it.

    Your host can, and does, make an SEO difference.

    Anyone that says differently is full of nonsense.

    In fact, you yourself said your host was not doing https....HELLO!

    If that's not a clue that your host can make a difference.....

    If you are switching hosts just because of https....and you have no login or personal info....then you are changing for the wrong reason.

    Changing hosts can go smoothly and quickly...or not. If you take a week to switch and change over...you could suffer.

    Hosts have differences in speed, servers, settings, etc.

    They do (or do not do) back ups in a timely manner.

    They are up all the time, or down....

    How about support? Man that could cost you BIG time!

    Bells and whistles? You want the latest!

    There are updates to php, mysql, etc. So your host does not care....um yeah.

    Go with a name brand.

    Be sure that your unlimited is actually unlimited. Cheap hosting can be a boondoggle. It's not just bandwidth...it's data storage, files, etc.

    All of this can affect SEO.

    Exchanging web hosts won't influence your site positioning in any capacity. When you change your domain's DNS by guiding it from one server toward another server, there is a spread period before the new changes produce results. You can move your site to new hosting. It won't affect your SEO.

    Some changes you can expect:

    1. Getting a faster hosting will be beneficial for your website.

    2. Adding https (because your current server is not supporting it) will give you some benefits from Google

    3. Make sure the server IP is from the country you are targeting.

    If you keeping the same domain and content then changing a web host won't impact your SEO. Just choose a reliable web hosting provider and they will transfer your website seamlessly without any issues.

    In some casing, hosting affect your SEO. Like if you're targeting for a specific country you must purchase hosting from there because It is probably fast in that area and as we all know that speed is one of the most important ranking factors we must consider it while targeting for local rea or a specific location
