I am a freelance web designer and have a shared hosting plan with Dreamhost.
In the next few days I will upload one of my new websites to Dreamhost.
Unfortunately, my client’s domain provider doesn’t allow me to change the nameservers to Dreamhost. So all I can do is change my client’s “A-record” to point to the new domain now hosted at Dreamhost.
What worries me is that one of the Dreamhost support staff tells me that my site will go down, if my IP address ever changes in the near future due to reshuffling.
Can anybody estimate how likely it is that my IP address at Dreamhost ever changes in the next, say, 2 years? And will I get notified of this?
Thanks for any input…
