    Hello!

    I'm very new to WHM and I have some question about.

    I have a vps with, 3 IP and want to add 5-6 domains where 2 of this can be together!

    What is the best way to organize this vps for a high security and easy management! (I'm the owner of all domains, so i don't want to share for clients)

    Sorry if this question is asked before, but I want to be sure that everything work correctly!


    Thanks in advance!

    Hello :)

    Typically, you would create a separate account for each domain name. If you would like multiple domain names to be apart of the same account, the additional domain names will need to be added as Parked or Addon domain names. These types of domains are documented at:

    Parked Domains
    Addon Domains

    Thank you.

    Reseller accounts are not required. IP addresses can be managed through Web Host Manager, under the "IP Functions" sub-menu. Accounts are stored in separate home directories. EX:

    /home/username1
    /home/username2

    You can review the documents under "cPanel & WHM 11.30 for Linux" at the following URL for full information on all of these details:

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    If someone types the IP address, the first VirtualHost entry for that IP will show in a browser. If it is the shared IP address, then the /usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html content will display, which is typically a redirect to /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys default page.

    As for the error message, it means that you do not have any additional dedicated IP addresses to use for account creation. You should be able to have a domain use the shared IP address for the server, or you can share an IP between sites if you create a reseller (as previously mentioned) and then assign a shared IP for that reseller to use for each account created under the reseller.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.

    Thanks!
