Automatically Creating an Account with a Dedicated IP

How can I automatically have dedicated IPs assigned to cPanel accounts?

To automatically have an IP address assigned during cPanel account creation, you’ll need to create a custom package.

 

Note: You’ll need to have additional unused IP addresses for this to work. This guide also implies that you’re already logged into WHM.

 

  1. Using the search box in WHM, type in the word “package”
  2. From the matches that populate below the search bar select “Add a Package”
    1. You can also click on Packages
    2. Select “Add a Package”
