    Hi Mike,

    Domains for newly created accounts should automatically assign to the shared IP address on the server. So unless this is a dedicated IP address that you are wanting to add for the account, then the shared IP should already be available for any newly created accounts.

    You can create a new account in WHM > Create a New Account area.

    If this is a dedicated IP you need to add, then you'd do it in WHM > Add a New IP Address area. Next, you'd assign a dedicated IP to an account after creation in WHM > Change Site's IP Address area.

    Finally, you'd assign a dedicated IP during account creation in WHM > Create a New Account area by checking "Select Options Manually" and then checking "Dedicated IP" under the Settings field.

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
