    I've read a lot of dedicating / sharing ip threads but can't seem to find the one that covers my case, and following the suggestions on the other threads haven't worked out for my situation.

    I have 3 IPs.

    #1 - main shared IP with many sites
    #2 - hosts site "A"
    #3 - hosts site "B"

    I'd like to not have any dedicated IPs, I'd like to move the sites around all 3 IPs at will, but continue to use #1 as the main share.

    Looking at "Show/Edit Reserved IPs", the only IPs that are checked off are local network (192.168 and 172). The three IPs above are NOT checked.

    When I go to move any site from #1, it shows that #2 is "dedicated to acct A" and won't let me move it there, but I could move it to #3.

    How can I "un-dedicate" that IP so that I can assign other sites to it just like I can for #3?

    I really appreciate you taking the time to reply to my issue, but I think you missed something in my OP - I've already tried that.

    I can't move any site to that IP, it's "deselected" and says it's dedicated to that account.

    If you're suggesting I move that dedicated account off, I shouldn't have to, I don't have to move site B off of ip #3 in order to move other sites to that IP.

    So, to restate the problem, I'm trying to make ip #2 available for other accounts to be moved to it, just like ip #3 is.

    well in such case , you will need a spare IP so that you can make changes accordingly using that spare IP.

    Can you tell me why I can move sites from #1 to #3 but not #1 to #2?
