I can't seem to find a way to add or move sites to an IP that already has one site on it. The dropdown box shows empty. There has to be a way. Can anyone give me some assistance?

When you assign an IP address to a website, that IP address is a dedicated IP address. That means that IP address can only be used for that account from that point forward. You cannot have 2 accounts use the same "dedicated" IP address.

So there's no way I can ever get more than one site per additional IP? That seems rather odd. Is there a way to make an additional IP a shared IP?

So if I have four additional IPs then I need to set up four reseller accounts. I think that should solve the problem. Thank you.

I'm finally getting back to this little project. I created a package and assigned an available IP. When I try to create an account it tells me that the package has no name, but as I see it it does. Am I missing something?
