How to Change IP addresses for Multiple Accounts in Bulk

May 24, 2021 / cPanel & WHM

In this article, you will find a way to change IP addresses for a large number of accounts at once.

If you add a new IP address to a server or change the shared IP address of your server, you may want to update several accounts in as few clicks as possible. This can be done using root WHM’s “Change Multiple Sites’ IP Addresses” feature.

  1. Log into WHM.
    WHM Login
  2. Navigate to Home, Select Multi-Account Functions.

  7. Click on the “Change IPs” button.

Following that, the cPanel/WHM program will go through each account and update the DNS zone as well as all Apache configuration files to represent the new IP address. When a site’s IP address is changed, the DNS may not spread to all nameservers on the internet, causing the site to appear down in certain places.

In this way, you can change IP addresses for multiple accounts in bulk. We hope this tutorial has helped you. Visit our Knowledgebase for more information.
