How to set up Multiple Accounts on a Heart Internet Dedicated server

Setting up a Dedicated Server on Heart Internet.

I've never had that much to do with setting up servers so once we got our Dedicated server things .   The first thing I realised is this

* the basic dedicated server set up does not have a WHM / Cpanel installed - this service will cost you an extra £20 a month.  This may effect your decision whether to use a dedicated server or not.

Once you have WHM then you need to  set up you CPANEL accounts for the multiple domains your going to have on your server.

take a look at the WHM documentation to see how to do this

How to set up multiple domain on my server using WHM ?

WHM how to set up a new account ?

WHM where to start with setting up sites ?

take a look at this post
The big clue here that I needed to stumble upon is that before setting up  a new account I need to create a package.

After you make a Package then you need to make an account. 

To do this click on 'Account Functions'

and then on the next screen you'll have a 'create new account' option.

Here's a couple of questions I had while setting things up

should I enable DKIM on my DNS settings ?

DKIM stands for Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) and is a layer of security , so I will be added by it.

and should I enable SPF on my DNS settings

Sender Policy Framework  - 

again a security layer. ->

After click on 'adding the new account'   I got this message

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.)

this because in the package set up i needed to have 'Dedicated IP' unticked.

After this you get sent the account details for your new account and will need to login to that in a new browser window.
