Creating Administrator Accounts
From the main Administrator menu, click the "Create / Modify Admins" link. You will see a page that looks like this:
Your default Admin account (the account you sign into the control panel with) will be in the table. In the above example we have an additional Admin called garyadmi.
Creating Additional Administrators
Note: All Admins have the exact same authority. That is, any Admin can delete another Admin and create new Admins.
To create an Admin, click the "Create Admin" link at the top of the page.
First enter an Admin username. This can be 4-8 characters long. Enter a valid e-mail address, password, and check the "Send Email Notification" box to send the new Admin their account information. Click "Submit" when you are finished.
Send Mail Notification
Check this box to automatically send the customer their account details by e-mail. You can click the "Edit User Message" link to customize the e-mail content.
To change the "From:" address of these welcome messages, switch to your User panel and go to the "Statistics" menu. Then, enter the appropriate e-mail address in the "E-mail" field.
After making changes, click the "Save." button. You may restore the message back to its original content by clicking the "Reset to Default" button.
To suspend an Admin, place a checkmark next to the Admin(s) you want to suspend and click the "Suspend/Unsuspend" button. A suspended Admin cannot log into the control panel, create web sites, or access his/her own web site(s). In addition, all web sites created by that Admin (through his/her Reseller panel) will also become suspended.
Note: Resellers created by the Admin will not become suspended.
To delete an Admin, place a checkmark next to the Admin(s) you want to delete and click the "Delete" button. When you delete an Admin, you are deleting his/her Admin account, web site, and Users created by that Admin through his/her Reseller panel.
Note: Deleting an Admin will not delete the Resellers created by that Admin.
