(WHM >> Home >> Account Functions >> Change Site's IP Address)


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.

Change the IP address

To change a site’s IP address, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the account or user from the Account Selection menu.


    Use the Account Search By feature to search for an account by domain or by user.

  2. Click Change.

  3. Select the new IP address from the New Address menu.
