    Hello everyone!

    I'm going to migrate an account from shared IP to a dedicated IP address. I wonder if it is possible to let an account be available on two IP addresses at once, for a while, until the DNS-changes has replicated out in the world.

    I can see that I can change the IP-address for an account, but if I do that the webpage will be unavailable for users until the DNS has updated... If I'm getting this right :)

    Thank you!

    There's no way in WHM to allow an account to have two IP addresses at the same time. While you could put in two A records for that account in the DNS zone and two entries into the VirtualHost entry for that account, those would have to be manual alternations and I couldn't say if this would have the desired result.

    I am not using cPanel as DNS-servers, we have a separated DNS-system.

    Could you tell me how to alter the VirtualHost-entry? I guess I just need this to work for 7-10 days, and then remove the entry.

    Thank you for answering me.

    I just copied the previous virtualhost for the site and made a duplicate with a different address. It works fine, and I guess it will work until I do some other change to any sites.

    Thanks again!
