Web Hosting Tip: Change Site’s IP in WHM without Root Access

As you’ll find, most Hosting providers don’t provide Root Access with Reseller Hosting packages. While this is a common practice in the Industry there are certain functions which require root access that a user may need to conduct frequently. One such function is changing a site’s IP.

To be able to let our users perform this function on their own, we’ve built a custom plugin with our WHM implementation that allows them to easily change their site’s IP from their WHM panel.

Here’s a step by step guide on how you can do this:

  • Login to your ResellerBytes’ control panel & navigate to the order view of your Linux Reseller Hosting package
  • Once there, access your WHM account. This will automatically log you in to your WHM panel. Alternatively you can login directly to your WHM account using the URL yourdomainname/whm
  • In your WHM panel, scroll down to the plugins section and click on ‘Change Site’s IP’
  • Thereafter, you can select the account for which you want to change IP, select from the available IPs and click on Change IP.
  • You’ve now successfully changed the IP!
