If a reseller uses a shared IP dedicated to him does that IP have to show the server main default page?

The reseller wants his shared IP to resolve to his main account and also be used for his customer's account. Mainly to not show our business name that is on the server main default page.

Hi,

If a dedicated IP has been provided to a reseller and that he uses it as a reseller shared IP for all his domains. He can then create his own custom pages via reseller templates, so when the IP is browsed, it will show the page that the reseller has created rather than the cPanel's default page.

Hello,

You'd need to edit the Apache configuration file to ensure the reseller's domain name is the first virtual host listed for that IP address. You'd use the same method referenced on the following post (except you'd use the reseller's document root):

IP Address Crawlable

Thank you.
