Dear all , I tried creating an account in my WHM . The domain name is an ip (xx.xx.xxx.xx) (Dedicated IP). after i filled the form and submit it i got an error as follows

Account Creation Status: failed

(XID nxtzkb) “xx.xx.xxx.xx” is not a valid domain name per <a href="RFC 1035 - Domain names - implementation and specification">RFC 1035</a>.

But , i already have one account with IP as domain name which shares the server main IP.Then why this time i am getting this error . i am confused ?!?!?!

Kindly help me please .

You must use a domain name when creating an account in WHM. If that account has a dedicated IP address, once that account is created using the domain name, the account can be opened in your browser using the IP address instead of the domain name.
