    Hi,

    I have given a new IP address to a website which previously was using a shared IP address. I have not modified the settings in the DNS server. So the website name still resolves to the previous IP address.

    But as I have assigned a new IP address to the website through WHM when I go to the browser and enter the new IP address it does not go to the website. The connection times out. Can you tell me the reason behind this and hot to fix it?

    I'd appreciate your feedback.

    Thanks,
    Devendra Kalia

    Finally, I was able to figure it out.

    I had to pass that IP address through the firewall and it worked.
