Adding A New cPanel User

cPanel allows you to create additional user accounts. Each account can have its login information and permissions. In terms of management, it is easier and safer to have the additional accounts use their own login information and specific permissions rather than have them access cPanel with the same login details.

Here is how to add a new user to cPanel

  1. Log in to cPanel
  1. Navigate to the ‘Preferences’ section and click on ‘User Manager’

  • The Full name is the name of your new user.
  • The username is the actual username of the new account.
  • Under ‘domain’ you specify the domain/s on your hosting account this user has access to.
  • The contact e-mail address is the e-mail address of this user.

Under ‘Security Information,’ you have the option to either create a password for your new user or let them create one on their own. If you choose ‘The User Will Set The Account Password,’ an email with instructions on how to create the password will be sent to the specified email. If you choose ‘Set The User’s Password,’ a dialog box will appear where you will input the password you have created or let the system generate one for you.

What Are The Advantages of Having More Than One cPanel User

Adding individual user accounts can help you to better manage your site/sites. For instance, if you have more than one domain, for example, you can allocate the management of each domain to different users. In that way, they will be able to analyze it better and notify you in case there is any domain-related or site issues. It will be much easier than doing it on your own, especially if you have more than one domain and multiple other active products. Management of resources will be much easier.

Moreover, it is much secure to add users, in case you need help, than having multiple users access cPanel using one account. The big advantage with adding a new cPanel user is that you can restrict their access by specifying their permissions. With that, you can actually just remove a user whenever you want to rather than having to make major changes to your account to lock them out. With Multiple cPanel accounts, as opposed to one account with multiple users, gives you greater control and ability to monitor your account.
