    When I go to "Add an A Entry for your Hostname" the IP suggested and listed for the "Server Main IP" is the server's old IP address and not the new one. I removed the old IP from the server and every place I could find it but it's showing up here. For completeness sake, how do I change that IP listed there to the new one? Thanks!

    Have you looked at the DNS zone itself?

    Also, make sure that the new IP address corresponding to your hostname has PTR record /RDNS entry set to hostname.

    Yes, I deleted and re-added the DNS entry for the hostname a few times without any luck. The DNS records externally are correct (I changed the IP to my old server IP so the DNS didn't change externally).
