Removing template to edit DNS IP?

My web page is hosted by WEEBLY, I have just activated SSL. They want me to point my IP to a new address. GoDaddy says "remove WEEBLY template" before I can update my IP address in the DNS settings. Is this a safe thing to do and do I need to reinstall/put it back?


I understand that I need to put the new IP address in two different locations in the GoDaddy DNS settings: which ones?

Thanks for any help

Where do I enter the new addresses and can I safely remove the template? I did not put it there, either GoDaddy or Weebly set it up that way. I suppose it has to be put back?

Test supplied by Weebly:
