    Hi all,

    Within Cpanel WHM under "Main->IP Functions" I have an option to "Add a new IP address".

    I have added 2 more IP's, so the total is now 3 IP's.

    Can someone please explain what the advantage of this is?
    What can I "do" with these 2 extra IP's?

    Thanks in advance
    /Jim

    I will assume your provider allocated the ip's to you

    you can use them for IP' based hosting so you can run SSL or register tham as additional name servers

    Yeah I have a /29 subnet with my hosting provider.

    Can you please elaborate what you mean with IP based hosting / SSL?

    Thanks for your reply.

    You can use ips for anything you want. Technically you only need 1 ip to host all of your sites, but some people like to separate their sites, or have nameservers on separate ips, or need them to install ssl's. But generally speaking, all of your sites you add will be on your main ip.
