    What exactly you are trying is not clear. If you are trying to change the main IP of the server, then you should be careful because you may end up losing connection if the new IP is not properly routed..

    Please go ahead and elaborate what exactly you are doing and what exactly you are planning t

    Hello,

    Could you verify how you are checking to verify the configured "A" record for the hostname? Does the proper entry exist under the parent domain name's DNS zone when checking via "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone"?

    Thank you.
