To use the Manage Team feature in cPanel

Attentive users may have noticed that a new functionality called "Manage Team" has been added to cPanel. This innovative option allows you to create team user accounts that allow multiple people to access, manage, and work on the same cPanel account without having to share their credentials.

Through the "Manage Team" feature in cPanel, the account owner can make it easier for developers and administrators to manage their company's websites. Each team member has an individual login and gets access to the same cPanel account resources. This allows a clear separation of tasks and creates an overview of all accounts.

One of the main objectives of the new Team Manage feature is to give different roles specific access to the features they need. For example, when an account owner hires an email administrator, that team user is placed in the role of email administrator. This gives him access to the email functionality in cPanel and ensures that all the necessary tools are available for his tasks. This approach also allows an account holder to hire web designers, web programmers or database administrators. All of these positions have access to the resources necessary for their activities without interfering with the account owner's cPanel login process.
