User management (DNSmanager)

There are 3 access levels in the DNSmanager control panel:

  • Reseller - unlike DNSmanager users, a reseller can create and manage his own user accunts.

DNSmanager users have nothing to do with the operating system users. These accounts are only used in DNSmanager.

Please note! You cannot add a new user or reseller with private name space unless you have free IP-addresses. To add one go to the IP-addresses module. See also Customizing DNSmanager.

In this module you can add new users, edit existing ones, delete, disable and enable them, and drill down to their level, if necessary.
