    Hello :)

    In order to give another account full access to Web Host Manager, you would need to make the account a reseller, and assign that reseller the following privilege:

    "All Features"

    To note, this option grants a reseller the same privileges as the root user.

    The following is a document on assigning privileges to reseller:

    Reseller - Edit Privileges

    For SSH access as root without the direct password, you can create a key via:

    "WHM Main >> Security Center >> Manage root’s SSH Keys"

    Keep in mind that any account that has full root access will also have permission to change the root password via WHM or SSH.

    Thank you.
