The Control Panel Subusers section allows you to create additional users for the Control Panel, with limited access to the sections you specify.

Creating a Control Panel subuser

To create an additional Control Panel user, follow this procedure:

1. Enter an username in the Username text field. It will automatically be prefixed with the main username of the hosting Control Panel, and has to subsequently be used with the prefix.
2. Enter a password of your choice in the Password text field.

You will notice that there is a password strength indicator below the Password field. It will update in real time as you are entering your new password. There are five distinct levels of password strength: Very WeakWeakFairStrong, and Very Strong. Along with the password strength indicator, you will also get information and hints in a tooltip beside the indicator.

Roles

Note that the Add button will remain inactive (grayed out) if the password level is Very Weak or Weak. You will only be able to set a password that is deemed FairStrong, or Very StrongYou can check the following article for tips on choosing a secure password:

  • If you enable access to SureWebBuilder (Main user) for a Control Panel subuser, then that subuser will be able to access SureWebBuilder as your main user and thus will also have full access to the file system on the account using the built-in File Manager of SureWebBuilder.
