Account privileges overview

Account Privileges allow you to grant account access to another person so they can edit settings within the panel. When you create account privileges, you are able to choose how much access is allowed. For example, if you have four websites in your account and you want someone else to have access to only one of them, you can choose which domain, emails, and databases you want to provide access.

What the granted user sees in the panel

When the newly created user logs into their account, they only see the information you have allowed.

In the following example:

  • The new user named ‘dhuser’ only has access to two domains and the Unique IP.
  • The ‘Manage Account’ tab at the top is grayed out – this is because this user does not have billing privileges.

  • Since billing privileges have not been added, this new user cannot add or renew registrations either.
Below is what a user sees in the panel when they click the ‘Domains > Registrations’ tab:
