Connecting to Your WebPro (Client)
If you are an InMotion Hosting customer and you want to work with a WebPro, or if you're contacted by one, your approval process is very simple. First, though, why would you use a WebPro? And why give a WebPro access to your account? WebPros are managers and developers who manage or work on your websites. They will only have access to the interfaces that deal with the management of your website and do not have access to your billing information. The main advantage of access is that they can quickly get to your account without any special credentials. So, instead of the hassle of having to give out specific passwords to your account, you can simply approve WebPro access and then let them work on your website. You will also be able unlink your account at any point. This article briefly discusses the contact with a WebPro before and after your InMotion Hosting accounts are linked.
How to Connect with Your WebPro (Client)
Only registered InMotion Hosting Accounts can be linked to a WebPro
There are couple different ways that WebPro may get in touch with you initially. Either they are aware of your InMotion Hosting account or they may touched base with you through a face-to-face meeting or other means. In any case, the WebPro does require your approval before they can link to your account. So to summarize, the WebPro will need to communicate with you that either they or you want link your account to their WebPro Admin account. You will need to provide your primary domain name, an email address or the AMP User ID.
The AMP User ID can be found by logging into the Account Management Panel (AMP) and then looking towards the top right corner of the account.
- After the initial communication, the WebPro will go into their interface and then use the identification that you have provided to request that they be allowed to link their account.
- When the WebPro requests to link to your account you will receive an email request through the email address associated with the InMotion Hosting account. In order to approve the link request, simply scroll to the bottom of the message and click on Approve Account Linking.
That completes the linking of your account. There are some internal processes that need to complete, so the approval may take several minutes. Once it is completed you will be able to see the WebPro Link clients icon in your AMP interface. The WebPro Contact card in AMP will contain the most relevant contact information for your WebPro. You can use the information to contact your WebPro via phone or email. Please see our other guides learn more about the WebPro interface
