    What is the best way to take an shared IP account to a IP account with the least disruption to the client? I know I can change the IP address in WHM from the main shared IP address to a free IP address but the site is down until the information propagates.

    reduce the TTL in DNS from 14400 to 300 or so.. Do this about 6 hours before completing the IP change.
    should be no more than 5mins outage at worst.
