We get questions occasionally from Reclaim Hosting users that are interested in adding a sub-user to their cPanel account. Multi-user cPanel access would be awesome, but unfortunately that’s something that cPanel has not yet built into their platform yet. They are have a feature request where they’re issuing updates.
cPanel does have a User Management area however. While the User Manager isn’t exactly multi-user cPanel access, it lays the foundation for it. And as a bonus: it’s also a nice way to easily create a user with access to multiple items at once.
You have two ways of getting to your User Manager within cPanel:
On your top right hand search bar or by scrolling to the bottom of your cPanel and looking in the Preferences category:
Upon clicking User Manager, this is what you’ll see:
Note the settings wheels next to the search bar that allow you to refine your search, as well as the Add User button to the left.
When selecting the Add User option, you have access to an array of options from a single screen. On top of quickly creating and managing user accounts, you can now also create and maintain email, FTP and Web Disk accounts.
The User Manager also allows you to link separate user accounts (email, FTP, Web Disks) that share the same username, so users can make use of the new Unified login system. Basically, this just means that End users now have to remember one set of credentials as opposed to different sets for every account.
You can also see which users have access to what with a quick glance to the right-hand side of the page.
