    Hello All,

    What I want is, I want to configure more than 1 IP address in Server so that if our Shared Server's IP get blacklisted, we can immediately use another IP address for few domains?

    Following things are possible?
    -> Can I set dedicated Mail Server's IP address to particular domain?
    -> Shared domains has shared IP address and particular domain has dedicated IP address.

    Is it possible?

    Hi,

    Let me answer it one by one:

    Can I set dedicated Mail Server's IP address to particular domain?
    Yes, you can do this, but make sure the RDNS is properly set, otherwise, you will get the mails from this IP in spam due to specific reasons.

    Shared domains has shared IP address and particular domain has dedicated IP address.
    -> Yes that is true, but again you can also have 2 or more shared IPs on a single server, so you can divide the load among the users..

    Hi @CrazyforLinux,

    Just to clarify further, this can be done without setting an additional shared IP. As well, cPanel currently only supports 1 shared IP, without the use of resellers. There are workarounds that allow you to configure multiple shared IP's without resellers, but these can lead to configuration issues and are generally unsupported.

    The documentation below discusses how to go about changing the outgoing mail IP:
    How to Configure the Exim Outgoing IP Address - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    By configuring `/etc/mailips' and ensuring 'Send mail from account’s dedicated IP address' is off, and 'Reference /etc/mailips for outgoing SMTP connections' is on at WHM > Service Configuration > Exim Configuration, you may control any domain and even all domains to use a specific IP address to send mail.

    By using this, you don't need to change the shared IP.

    Thanks,
