    Hey guys!

    So i recently bought cPanel and put it on my dedicated server. Everything works fine as my main domain is currently visible and working! NOW, with my dedicated server, I also purchased a SECOND IP Address.

    -- 1st IP address is tied to my main domain.
    -- 2nd IP is what I want to use for a second domain.

    I see multiple tutorials online, but I am not sure which one to follow, because I am afraid of messing my server up.

    What I've done so far:
    -------------------------------
    1) I added my 2nd IP address in WHM, (Home --> IP Functions --> Add a New IP Address)
    2) I added my Addon Domain in cPanel.

    It's the third step I am having issues with, how do I tie that domain in cPanel, to the IP address I added in WHM?

    Any pointers would be much appreciated!
    Happy holidays to everyone ;)

    J

    Hello,

    You can remove the domain name as an addon domain name and create a separate cPanel account for it via:

    Create a New Account - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Then, assign it the different IP address via:

    Change a Site's IP Address - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Otherwise, if you prefer to keep an addon domain name, you can follow the instructions at:

    How to Assign Dedicated IP Addresses to Subdomains - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thanks!

    Ok, thank you Michael.

    I will try one of the above, and let you know within 24hours how it goes.

    Thanks again!
