This interface allows you to change an account’s IP address. You can use this interface, for example, to assign a unique IP address to a site in order to host an SSL-secured website.
- This interface requires
root-level permissions on the server. To grant these permissions to a reseller account, use WHM’s Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges interface (WHM >> Home >> Resellers >> Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges).
- To change one of your domains’ IP addresses, you must first obtain the IP address from your data center and add it in WHM’s Add a New IP Address interface (WHM >> Home >> IP Functions >> Add a New IP Address).
- If you run a data center, obtain your IP addresses from your regional Internet registry (RIR). For more information, read the Wikipedia article on Regional Internet Registries.
