Adding a Dedicated IP Address to Your Server

You can get dedicated IP addresses through your AMP section. Below is a tutorial on adding a dedicated IP address to your Dedicated server.

  1. I recently opened a VPS-1000HA-S account and added a dedicated IP to my account (by using one of the three credits included with my account). However there is no indication on how to actually use the dedicated IP with my account. The above directions aren’t valid in my case (no ‘IP Functions’ in WHM nor ‘Additional Services’ block in my AMP).

    1. Hi Charles. Unfortunately, we can not assist you with your account in the public comments of this article. I recommend you contact our live technical support for assistance with your account. They will be able to verify your account and review the details to privately provide some insight into what is happening and how to proceed.

    2. I have the same problem and after three days still could not come up with a solution even though I contacted the live support.

      1. Hello Charles – apologies for the problem with the IP address. We’re not sure of the exact problem that you’re having, but the live support team should be able to resolve or explain the issue. If you can provide a domain name or user name for the account, then we can investigate the issue in more depth. Please provide us info so that we can find the account to see what’s happening.

  2. I saw a suggestion to change my IP address from a number to a word, like iPan4Gold. 

    Is that possible? 

    Any reason why it’s a bad idea? 

    Please advise.




    1. Domain Name System (DNS) is the system that converts domains and IP addresses. If you have a dedicated IP address, it’s easier to improve email authentication and prevent being blacklisted for activity per IP. Please let us know if I misunderstood you.

  3. hi, i just got reseller VPS understanding was i will get 3 dedicated IP address but i see only one how can i get rest 2 IPs.

    1. Hello, if you need additional IPs assigned you will need to contact support via chat, phone, or email to have them add them for you.

  4. New user of WHM here (reseller account, WHM v68.0.27). What does it mean if my WHM has no “IP Functions” section?
