|This is where you can grant other people Web Panel access to your account. For example, you might want to let one of your Users have access to your domains, but not let them have access to your billing information. You can do that here!
There are seven types of Privileges that you can grant to others:
Billing refers to the Billing tab of your web panel. If you grant someone Billing privileges for your account, then they will be able to access the Billing tab to sign up for new services, make payments, edit your payment methods, view your billing history, etc. Be very careful about to whom you choose to grant this privilege!
Privilege Administration refers to the ability to change privileges. This is the most dangerous of all privileges! If you grant someone the privilege of Privilege Administration, then not only will they be able to edit their own privileges, but they'll also be able to edit the privileges of any other person you may have granted account access to. Essentially, someone with the privilege of Privilege Administration has the same power over an account that the account owner does.
You may select any of your plans to give another web ID access to. You may also allow access to all of your plans if you'd like. Having access to a plan basically means that you can add services such as users, domains, databases, and mailing lists to that plan, up to the amount that plan provides. It does not allow ending, upgrading, or downgrading the plan. You'd need to have billing privileges to do that. Basically, if you want to allow somebody to add their own new services through our web panel, you need to give them access to a plan!
You can choose to give a web ID access to any specific domains of yours, or access to all domains you have. Domain access allows a web ID to change the web directory for that domain as well as modify all email addresses, auto-responders, mailing lists, and discussion lists at that domain. They can even remove the domain, though they won't be able to add another one unless they have PLAN access.
You can choose to give a web ID access to any specific user (or mailbox) of yours, or access to all users you have. User access allows a web ID to change the shell, password, homedir, and name for a user or mailbox. They can even remove the user, but they won't be able to add another one unless they have PLAN access.
You can choose to give a web ID access to any specific database of yours, or access to all databases you have. Database access allows a web ID to manage database users and hostnames. Of course, anybody who has a database username/password can actually access a database. The privileges is more for setting up those database usernames and being a database "administrator". Database privilege allows you to delete a database but you won't be able to add one unless you have PLAN access.
You can choose to give a web ID access to any specific mailing list of yours, or access to all mailing lists you have. Mailing list access allows a web ID to modify the properties/subscribers to a mailing list as well as to post to the mailing list from the web panel. They can also delete the mailing list but won't be able to add one unless they have DOMAIN access to the domain they want to add it to. In a way, mailing list access is a sub-set of DOMAIN access.
