    We have a GoDaddy account fro domain hosting, and have also setup emails through the Cpanel.

    However, my webdeveloper/designer etc... now needs access to the CPanel to set it all up; and I don't want to let him access our company emails.

    We've given FTP access, but he also needs the CPanel for DNS settings and setting up google apps.

    If in Cpanel, you just click access webmail, and you're in...

    HELP... I'm stuck here for a solution.

    Hello :)

    There's no way to prevent access to your emails if you provide someone with your cPanel username/password. The emails are available in /home/$username/mail even if you disable the "Webmail" feature in the feature manager from WHM.

    Thank you.

    Can I give him access to the DNS settings and other items required for web-building/design without giving him CPanel access then?

    There are no options available in cPanel/WHM that allow for this type of restricted access without the cPanel username/password. There's a feature request open for this at:

    Thank you.
