How i finally setup an cPanel account on addon IP & Godaddy

Postby hostingforum » Fri Apr 27, 2012 10:44 pm

Hi there, im amateur and im owning an cPanel server from OVH.com. This is guide how to create an cpanel account at an Addon IP at cpanel server and also setup custom nameservers properly at Godaddy. I wanted to have few sites at another IP, i got an IP from OVH assigned to my server. Its called Fail-Over IP by OVH.

1. Fail Over IP, additional IP assigned to server
So i got this IP assigned and shown as Free IP in my WHM (WebHosting manager). (explore right menu to find IP section)

2. Godaddy
Now what i did is that i accessed my Godaddy domains account and selected primary domain for my account under which will be another domains.
SO i clicked the main domain name and entered domain details in DOmain Manager at Godaddy. Now i scrolled down the page and on the left i clicked "Add". It should be the last box on the site. There you setup Custom nameservers at godaddy. How it works is that you setup some name like: ns1.yourdomain.com
and assign at least 2 IPs to this nameserver. In my case i successfully added on the first place my IP i want this new cpanel account to reside on and second my cPanel server main IP. And i have created NS2 value with same IPs.
And now i worked also with http://www.intodns.com to check my site status

3. Creating cPanel account
From WHM on my server, i created new account and selected (ticked) values:
X Use the nameservers specified at the Domain's Registrar (ignore locally specified nameservers)
X Overwrite any existing DNS zones for the account
Then i created account, it was created on my MAIN server IP, so then i changed the account IP to the addon IP i want it to be on. To do it, click "Change Site's IP Address" in WHM left menu.
Then i checked http://www.intodns.com again and tried to access my website over web proxy (searched at Google: free web proxy) and it went OK. You might find "You dont ahve permission to access this..." blabla message. Try to upload some index.html file via FTP to your website folder and it may work..

Hope it helped you little bit. I dont guarantee this will work. If you have any ideas, just post it. Thx
