My IP is different than what I was told

Please understand that we have 5 different IP addresses for each shared server.

This means that sometimes new domains will have a slightly different IP address than what is indicated in cPanel and in your welcome email.

Also, if you buy a dedicated IP, then it will be different than the 5 shared IPs.
