[quote]You will need to get the IP address of the webserver here. In the panel, click Account Status in the upper right to get the MACHINE name. Then use a DNS tool to get the IP address for MACHINE.dreamhost.com. That’s the IP address you need to give the old provider so they can add an A record for the website.
No, this is incorrect and will not work. Our web servers have multiple IPs which are assigned semi-arbitrarily, and which are not interchangeable.
