    no it does not, in fact if you move to good hosting with 99% uptime and unique IP, your rankings will improve.

    It is possible but unlikely Matt Cutts talks about shared hosting here if you have a dedicated IP you should not have a problem

    as a matter of fact changing hosting does matter.

    first, depending on your downtime between the switch you will loose rankings for certain time
    second, if your new hosting is on for example chinese IPs and your sites are targetting US, you will loose positions again
    third, if your new hosting is good, fast and reliable that will improve your positions in the long run, but if it is bad you will loose as G awards fast sites with good uptime

    It depends. Are you hosting in the same country you're serving? For example, if you have a site in UK, it's better to use UK hosting with a UK IP which is more likely to improve ranking

    if you get better uptime and a faster server and away from shared hosting you should be better off

    Regardless - pagespeed makes a difference for sure.

    Real question is if the difference is worth the cost
