I just happened to notice that the last login IP address in cpanel was 70.39.232.170, which is not my IP address (207.53....). I don't think that it's a malicious address from a hacker, but I just wanted to make sure. I know that the shared server I am on has an IP starting with 70.39... so I figure it probably has something to do with maintenance or something like that... I just didn't want to take any chances, so I thought that I should ask here if this is malicious or not.

Hello Jdgrimes,

Good question! It is always best to be safe. Most people do not catch that. That IP address is the IP of secure1.inmotionhosting.com, which is the Account Management Panel. Your IP will show up if you sign in directly with yourdomain.com/cpanel.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
