1)First login to your WHM interface, and in the sidebar search field type : Add a Package and click on the link.
2) On the next screen, you'll be able to create a package that upon selection while creating an account, it will automatically assign an IP from your available IP.
To Proceed, you need to give a package name (make it distinctive so you can recognise this package later and aware it would allocate an IP). Fill in the desired packages values (Disk Quota, Addon Domains) and make sure to tick in Settings Option : Dedicated IP.
Then Click on Add
3) Proceed to the account creation by going to Create an account in WHM. Fill in the domains / password information and instead of selecting the options manually, Select the previously created package and click on Create.
4) Automatically, the system will assign an IP to your new account from the IP pool. If you go to list Accounts you'll see the actual IP used for the domain as indicated in the screenshot below:
If there you see the following error:
Account Creation Status failed:
Your system has run out of available IP addresses, or you do not have permission to use any more IP addresses. (Unable to find an IP address.)
It signifies that you are out of IP addresses and you would need to upgrade the quantity of IP from your client area.
If you would like to change an IP or set an IP as primary to be shared with all others accounts, you would need to open a support ticket and we will take care of it for you.
