    Would it be possible to have multiple user accounts for one cPanel account?

    Thanks David,

    I'm aware that multiple ftp accounts etc. are possbile but am specifically after the multiple user accounts for the cPanel account; maybe a suggestion for an upcoming cPanel release?

    You cannot have multiple users access the cPanel interface. However, you can add additional users for FTP, mail etc.

    This feature is available with the www.rvskins.com cpanel theme, in case you are using it. :)

    I suspect you mean their User-Feature Manager? But that's not a full cPanel user as far as I understand or am I wrong with that assumption?

    Yes, it is described here:

    http://www.rvskin.com/features/framePopup.php?pageId=7

    It is a full cpanel user and then another user "on top" of the cpanel user to limit what they can see and do.

    It works pretty well, albeit cumbersome to have to login twice. (But none of our customers have complained about that, so I suppose they don't have a problem with the double login.)

    Thanks,

    So basically a sub user right?

    I do hope one of the double logins isn't while using the main cPanel login specs, you need to login twice with the same 'sub user' specs?
