I have a hosting account with a company who is changing their IP, do I have to change anything with my DNS info, or will the changes they make resolve?

Thanks.

If your host does a proper job, you shouldn't need to do anything. Assuming that your "DNS info" points to your host's name servers (the most common setup), the name servers will simply change IP along with everything else hosted.

Thanks Dave,

It's not the first time that this hoster gave some bogus reason for the sites being down.
