Use the User Manager interface to add, manage, and delete your subaccounts. This interface allows you to link service accounts to subaccounts, and to manage each subaccount's access to email, FTP, and Web Disk.
(Home >> Preferences >> User Manager)
The User Manager interface allows you to add, manage, and delete your Subaccounts. You can manage each Subaccount's access to email, FTP, and Web Disk. The User Manager interface also allows you to merge email, FTP, and Web Disk accounts into a single Subaccount. Additionally, this interface allows you to link service accounts to Subaccounts.
If any email, FTP, or Web Disk accounts use the same username, the User Manager interface allows you to merge those accounts into a Subaccount. The User Manager interface groups any service accounts that qualify for a merge. To merge the service accounts together, click Link. If you do not wish to merge the service account, click Dismiss and the User Manager interface will no longer present the merge option for that service account.
To add a Subaccount, perform the following steps:
Enter a contact email address for the user.
Important: You must enter the contact email address to allow Subaccount users to use the Reset Password feature or to allow the user to set their own password.
To send an email to the user to set their own password, select the The user will set the account password option and proceed to step 8. To set the password yourself, select the Set the user's password option and proceed to step 7.
0indicates a weak password, while
100indicates a very secure password.
Select the Subaccount's services.
Note: If the Subaccount's username matches the username of another account, the interface will prompt you with the option to link or dismiss the account.
Email allows you to enable the Subaccount's email address.
FTP allows you to manage your website's files.
The Web Disk utility allows you to manage and manipulate files on your server in multiple types of interfaces (for example, your computer, mobile device, or certain types of software).
To edit a Subaccount, click Edit. You can adjust the following Subaccount properties within this section:
Contact Email Address — An alternate email address for the Subaccount's user.
Important: You must set the Contact Email Address option to allow Subaccount users to use the Reset Password feature.
To delete a Subaccount, click Delete and then confirm that you wish to delete the account.
Warning: If you delete a Subaccount, the system will remove all of the Subaccount's services.
