I like to know if there is a difference between hosting a website on your own web server vs. using Godaddy.com web hosting service in terms of how it is listed in major search engines such as Google, yahoo, or MSN...
The reason I am curious is that I had my business website running on GoDaddy web server (of course I had to pay for it for their service) and it used to come up on the first page when I type in "Name of my business" in Google search engine. Then I had to move the website to my own web server in house so that I can make changes right there right then instead of FTP up and down whenever changes were made.
After a while (running the website on my in-house web server), I noticed that my website would not come up when I search my business name on Google.
So I moved my website back to GoDaddy web server and it started showing up on Google after a while.
Can you shed some light on the subject so that I can understand what has happened?
Should there be a difference when running the website on commercial web server vs your own in-house web server with respect to finding the website on major search engines?
