    Can anyone explain the process?

  • #2
    To change the main shared IP address in cPanel follow the steps:

    1) log into WHM.

    2) Select Home Server Configuration Basic cPanel & WHM Setup.

    3) Set the main IP address (only one address) for shared IP virtual hosts in the section The IP address (only one address).

    4) As a result, /etc/wwwacct has been updated.

        The IP address on the server is shared by everyone, not just your domain. Most users don't require a dedicated IP address because popular configurations just require a shared IP address.

            Login to cPanel. Click on Statistics on the left side of cPanel and then go to Server Information. Locate your account's IP address.

                A shared IP address is shared between users in shared hosting whereas a dedicated IP address means your domain is assigned a committed IP address that is not public or used by any other domains.
