For cPanel & WHM 11.44

(Home >> IP Functions >> Show/Edit Reserved IPs)


This feature allows you to reserve an IP address that is in your address pool.

Reserve an IP address

When you reserve an IP address, you cannot assign it to newly-created accounts. This is useful if, for example, you do not want WHM to automatically assign a specific IP address to a new account as a dedicated IP address.

To reserve an IP address, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the checkbox next to the IP address that you wish to reserve.


    We strongly suggest that you specify a reason for why you reserved the IP address. This can be useful if, for example, multiple people act as the administrator of your server.

  2. Click Save.

Unreserve an IP address

To unreserve an IP address, perform the following steps:

  1. Deselect the checkbox next to the IP address that you wish to place back in the address pool (unreserve).
  2. Click Save.
