Is it possible to setup other user accounts to access cPanel. I want to let other staff manage email accounts, but do not want to share the main admin login. Can I create other user logins for cPanel?

Hello Nexent1,

Thank you for your question about cPanel. I'm sorry but there is only one user name and password which can be set up for cPanel. When you say "manage email accounts" do you mean you want to allow them to create email accounts or simply check their email? Email users can <a href="">check their email</a> through either an email client or Webmail and can even <a href="">reset their email passwords</a> through Webmail.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.

Cpanel has had a feature request to have multiple users for the same account for awhile. It is amazing they do not have this feature yet. i.e. If you want to create a user that can manage only Email settings - it is currently impossible. You have to give them full access with your login.

True, this is quite a basic feature and it is disappointing that InMotion Hosting, that claim to be strong, do not offer this important feature. For me, it is a lot more than 'nice to have' and I will consider my alternative hosting provider in the future.
