    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.
