Adding an IPV6 Ranges

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.
