Carving off server access for client to create web page

We have a VPS account. We host a client's e-mail and web site from there. The client wants to use web designer to build and maintain his website without going through us. We are happy with that but are not sure how to create a segregated account and access to web designer just for their domain while protecting our other domains.

Hello ArkRoyal,

You can certainly allow a client to have their own area where they can work away from any other users. On our VPS and Dedicated servers, you have the ability to create multiple cpanel accounts. This gives each account their own area to work without affecting or allowing access to others.

To do this, follow the instructions in our article here: How to create a cPanel account within WHM

Thanks Scott, however, when I log into our WHM, the only function under account functions is web template editor. In fact, when I look at the screen shot with the linked instructions we don't have anywhere near the number of items shown.

Hello ArkRoyal,

It sounds like your privileges to the WHM may not be set correctly. Please contact live technical support so they can investigate and fix the issue.
