I'm sure this has been covered before somewhere, but please forgive me for asking again and let me know if I'm missing a step here.
I need to move my local/development site to a hosted account. My understanding is that the only change I need to make is in the web.config file, to the sitesqlserver setting. As long as I copy my local database and dnn site up to the host, and properly
change the dns settings, I should be able to browse to my site and log on as usual. I'm using ZoneEdit, so changing the dns IP address is easy, and should be reflected quickly.
When I browse to one of the moved portals, the message I see is: "This IP address cannot be used for browsing".

One thing you may need to look at is making sure the PortalAlias table is all set if you have new domain names. It seems like you said they should be the same, so this probably isn't the problem, but its worth mentioning.
I am guessing from this error message that you are going to something like
http://domain.com/ . My guess is that this server isn't set up for ASPX or that default.aspx is not the default page. If you have access to the IIS Settings, verify that default.aspx is a default page. You may also want to just browse directly to
default.aspx and verify that ASP.NET is even correctly installed on your new host.
