Overview

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. 

Warning
titleImportant:
  • 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 (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 (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.
