    Hi,

    I have a VPS hosted at Digital Ocean and they have put a limit of 1 IP address per droplet. I have some clients that need an extra IP address and I can create another droplets to obtain extra IP adresses, but how can I use this extra IP for an account at the WHM in the main droplet? Since they are different droplets, I would have to install WHM at the new one and buy a new license?

    If someone could help me I would be very grateful.

    Thank's in advance.

    Best regards,

    Otavio Barros.

    Hello :)

    You would have to obtain an additional license and install cPanel/WHM on each VPS if you use that method. You may want to consult with your provider to see if you can purchase additional IP addresses, as that would be the cheaper option. Also, are you sure you need a dedicated IP address for the accounts? Is it for SSL purposes?

    Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    yes, that would be for SSL purposes. Is that a way to use multiple SSLs keys over one IP address?

    Thank you.

    Yes, as long as you are using CentOS (or RHEL/CloudLinux) version 6 or higher then you can install SSL certificates on shared IP addresses due to SNI support.

    Thank you.
