This procedure makes addition or deletions of an IPv6 address range from the server. Using this interface, users can add at least one IPv6 address range before one assigns dedicated IPv6 addresses to a user in the ‘Assign IPv6 Address’ interface of WHM.

Add Range

In order to add a range of Ipv6 addresses, follow the given steps.

  1. Click on ‘Add Range’.
  2. Input a particular name for the IPv6 address in the ‘Range Name’ text box. This name should contain a maximum of 64 characters.
  3. In the ‘Range’ text box, enter the IPv6 address. The IPv6 address ranges consist of a condensed IPv6 address, an oblique symbol (/), and a number that denotes the network portion of the address range.
    For instance, 2001:0db8:1a34:56cf::/64
  4. From the ‘Range Type’ menu, select any of the following range types.
  • Reserved: The addresses in this range cannot be distributed to the users present on your server.
  • Available: The addresses in the range can be distributed to the users on your server.

If you make the selection for Reserved, the ‘Assign IPv6 Address’ interface of WHM does not list the changes to save them.

  1. The input of the description of the IPv6 address range is needed in the ‘Range Notes’ text box. This description must be 256 characters or less.
  2. Add the IPv6 address range by clicking on ‘Add Range’. Click ‘Cancel’ to close the form.

IPv6 Address Ranges table

This table enlists the information of each IPv6 address range present on the server.

IP Range Details

The information for every Ipv6 address range present on the server is given below.

  • The name of the range
  • The name of the address
  • The range notes
  • Reserved, if you choose to select Reserved as the type of address range.

Actions

You need to click on ‘Delete Range’ for a particular range in the ‘IPv6 Address Ranges’ table to make sure to delete it. Click on ‘OK’ after that.

However, it is not possible to delete a range that belongs to a particular user on your server at the moment. From an account, an IPv6 address range can be removed using WHM’s ‘Assign IPv6 Address’ interface which can be found at the path (WHM >> Home >> IP Functions >> Assign IPv6 Address).

Conclusion

Thus, this document encapsulates all the information on IPv6 ranges of the WHM interface.
