    If you change an IP from shared to dedicated, you will see it redirect to the default page. You have to wait for DNS to propagate. You should be able to view the site from the ip address directly however. If you flush your DNS cache locally and get the name resolving to the new ip, clear your browser cache and then go to the site. It should work.

    Most users will not notice unless they are on everyday then they may notice a brief downtime.

    If your server is showing 0 IP addresses, restart ipaliases in bash. Should solve that issue. Does not have anything to do with php/apache. Run ifconfig in your shell to see bound addresses.
