    I have a static IP that hasn't changed in probably 9 months, but what would even be my recourse if I use HAC to restrict access to my important items ssh/cpanel/whm to just that IP and for some odd unexpected reason my IP changed?

    You would simple update your HAC settings and switch them over to the new IP.

    That wouldn't be possible if the IP changed and whostmgrd access were denied to all IPs but for the static one. That would mean WHM was restricted for access. The same would be the case for sshd if all IPs were restricted but for the static one and it suddenly changed.

    At that point, the only course of action would be to have someone who has physical access to the machine log into it and add your new IP address.
