How do I setup without making name server changes?

My goal is to use the hosting at inmotion to run my web site, but still keep my DNS nameserver entries pointing at my current DNS provider. I see under the account management panel that it is possible to purchase a static IP address. Is that what I need to do in order to setup my own A record for with my current DNS service provider?

By the way, the current provider I use is and I use them to control a number of domains independently from any hosting.

Hi Bennett,

To host your website on our servers without updating your nameservers themselves, you'll need to point your domain's A RECORD to the IP address of your InMotion Hosting server. If you log into your cPanel, you'll see your server's IP addresses listed in the left hand side. Purchasing a dedicated IP addresses is not required for what it is you're trying to do.
