Account Sharing provides you with the ability to grant access to your account to another person, for example, a developer!
Opening Account Sharing is as easy as navigating to your Profile and clicking on Account Sharing or Access Manager:
Access can be granted to separate services, like hosting account, domain, emails, etc.
How to grant access in the new interface?
In the Account Sharing page click on the Grant access button:
And fill the form, inserting the email address of the person, whom you are granting access, their access level, and to which services you are granting access to.
Additionally, you can hide notifications from the user and allow them to set up pending orders.
How to grant access in the old interface?
In the Access Manager page fill the Grant Access form:
What can be done in the account, to which access is granted?
There are two Access Level options:
- Manage services - a person with the granted access will be able to make changes to your account, such as modify your VPS, shared hosting FTP files, website, add subdomains/parked/add-on domains and change other settings in your hosting control panel.
- Manage services and make purchases using a stored payment method - a person with the granted access will be able to make the above changes AND, as an addition, purchase new hosting accounts/domains with the already added payment method.
Even though you would provide access to another person there are some things that they won’t be able to do in your account, such as:
- Manage or add payment methods to your account.
- Invite others to access the account.
- View or change profile information (for example change email, name, phone, address).
- Do the following tasks with domains: transfer or unlock domains, change contact info, manage auto-renew, sell domains in the aftermarket, respond to a domain buy service, or manage backorders.
Can I see who has access to my account?
In the Users that have access to your account (or People who can access my account) section you will see email addresses of all people whom you granted access:
