WHM on CentOS 7 & Additional Public IP Addresses
Multiple attempts with Google Cloud Platform, CentOS Compute VM, and WHM setup; and attempts with cPanel Support / Forums to figure out a basic with WHM & Public IP Addresses, I am posting at Digital Ocean community and support in hopes to obtain a solution and to point out which setup I did miss on.
How do I add within WHM External / Public IP Address that is to be dedicated to a created Account within WHM that is a cPanel account established with a different Domain Name of the same Public IP to be added?
Installing WHM manually on a Google Cloud Platform CentOS 7 Compute; and while configuring WHM after install will prompt WHM to display a message about CentOS VM as being “server is on a NAT-configured network.” on “Add IP Address” page.
cPanel’s documents thus “If the installer detects a NAT-configured network, your server will configure itself for NAT mode and attempt to automatically map local IP addresses to public IP addresses.”
For Google Cloud Platform CentOS 7, I don’t think it is a straight forward process in adding additional Internal / Private IP Address from GCP console.
How do I add multiple External IP Addresses in WHM so I can use to host multiple cPanel accounts within?
- Is WHM Droplet a NAT configured server like Google Compute?
- Do I need to add more than one Network Interface?
- Do I need to setup a DNS Server?
- Do I need BIND
- Do I need add more Internal IP Addresses within CentOS / WHM so they ‘point’ / 'bind’ / 'forward’, whatever the right term is, to the Public IPs ?
- Do I need to create a DNS Zone within WHM for the domains; or I can keep using the domain’s registrar DNS Zone dashboard?
Any help or direction will be appreciated; Thanx
