cPanel Account Creation Status: out of available IP`s

Account Creation Status: failed (Your system has run out of available ip addresses, or you do not have permission to use any more ip addresses. (Unable to find an ip address.) )

You receive the “Account Creation Status: failed” error message while adding a domain from WHM >> Account Functions >> “Create a New Account” option which states that there is no free IP address to assign to your new domain.

The package you are using while adding a domain has the “Dedicated IP” option enabled which searches for a free IP on the server and tries to assign to the every new domain you create. To overcome the issue, you will have to deselect the “Dedicated IP” option from the package which can be achieved via ssh.

Edit the package file located under /var/cpanel/packages

nano /var/cpanel/packages/packagename

Search for


and replace with:

image 33 1024x580 - cPanel Account Creation Status: out of available IP`s

Save the file. You should now be able to create an account from WHM successfully.
