Account Sharing provides you with the ability to grant access to your account to another person, for example, a developer!

Access can be granted to separate services, like hosting, domain, emails, etc. To grant access, click on the profile icon and choose Account Sharing:

In the Account Sharing page, click on the Grant access button:

Next, fill out the form by inserting the email address of the person to whom you are granting access, selecting the access level, and choosing the services to be managed.

Additionally, you can hide notifications from the user and allow them to set up pending orders.

NOTES:

  • Both your account and the account to which you will share access must be registered under the same Hostinger brand (eg. if you are on Hostinger.co.uk, the other account must be on Hostinger.co.uk as well)

  • If the new user does not have a Hostinger account yet, they can create one by going to the Hostinger login page and choosing a social login method such as Google or Facebook

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 manage a VPS or hosting plan, modify files and websites, 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 in addition, purchase new hosting accounts/domains with your already added payment method

Even though you would be providing 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, and passwords)

  • Do the following tasks with domains: transfer or unlock domains, change domain's contact details, manage auto-renewals, sell domains in the aftermarket, respond to a domain buying service, or manage backorders

How to see who has access to an account

In the Users that have access to your account section, you will see the email addresses of all people to whom you granted access:

If want to revoke any access to your account, just click on Remove access next to the email.
