New shared IP address



On my wordpress site, Mailchimp suddenly started to give the error: "Error connecting to Mailchimp: 503 Service Unavailable "


On Mailchimp's website, they say the only solution is requesting a new IP address from my webhost. Please how do I go about this? Has anyone experienced this issue?

Re: New shared IP address



Here's a link for purchase of a Dedicated IP from GoDaddy. It's a good thing to have, especially on shared hosting.


I would recommend steering away from Mailchimp personally. I'm not sure if you're paying for it but I use GoDaddy Email Marketing and it doesn't slow down my site because there's nothing to install and it's much easier to use and integrate.
