Before you can assign individual and specific IPv6 addresses to users you must first define the range they are in.  A range of addresses is a cluster of a few IPv6 addresses.  Through this function in WHM you’ll be able to add, edit and delete the ranges you want. Follow this guide to set up the ranges for IPv6.

Adding An IPv6 Range Through WHM

Step 1:  Login to your WHM account

Step 2:  Head to Home > IP Functions.  You can select IP Functions from the available home menu or locate within the available organized columns on the left-hand-side.

This can be located quickly by searching for “ipv6” in the search box
