Good morning

I never assigned dedicated IP to an account. Today I tried to assign one for the first time.

My questions are:

1) I must update account's DNS zone and replace all sharedIP --> dedicatedIP?

2) Assigning a dedicated IP means that http:/mywebsite.com is totally equivalent to http:/123.123.123.123 (assuming this is the dedicated IP)*?

Thank you very much

Hello,

Keep in mind this assumes the domain name uses name servers associated with the cPanel server at it's domain registrar.

Thank you.
