Hello all,

 

We have used S1 and then upgraded to S2 easily, no change of platform etc, however we now need to move from S2 to a P2V2 plan and the message box says that the IP address will change. This will then have to be changed on the 60 or websites we host via their DNS.

 

As and when this process is started, does the IP changing immediately kill the websites hosted on our azure, or is there some lead time before propogation. ie if we click confirm to upgrade and then change the IP address on all the hosted websites within say 12 hours, would the websites see no dow-time, or are they down "offline" until the IP address change is complete?

 

Many thanks

Ben
