    Is it possible to create a second admin on Cpanel.
    I might need to give a software company access to a cpanel account, and I'd rather not give them the full username and password.
    I want them to only have access to a subdomain.

    I'm not sure this is what I was looking for.
    I'd like to give these guys full access but only temporarily.
    And I only want to give them access to a subdomain.

    I guess this thing gives them ftp and webdisk access which I could have done anyway.

    Hello :)

    Could you elaborate on this? Do you mean that when logging in, all features are available, but only for the subdomain (e.g. Email accounts, but limited to the subdomain)? If so, that's not currently supported, but you could create a separate cPanel account for the subdomain.

    Thank you.

    Or, create an addon ftp account and set it to that directory. That will give them file access only.

    I tried creating an account in User Manager, but i couldn't login to Cpanel.
    I assumed that User Manager only created email, ftp and webdisk accounts.

    Ideally, I'd like to give them a Cpanel account, but only to the subdomain.

    The only way to achieve this as of now is to create a separate cPanel account for the subdomain.

    Thank you.
