How to delegate access to a specific domain in GoDaddy


Delegating access to your GoDaddy account is a smart move, especially if you’re working with a website designer like me who needs access to your account without sharing your login credentials. So let’s dive in, shall we?

How to Delegate Access to Your GoDaddy Account

First, let’s talk about what delegating access actually means. It’s a feature that GoDaddy offers that allows you to grant access to your account to other people, without giving out your password. This is super handy because it keeps your account secure while still allowing others (like your trusty website designer, aka: me) to manage your products.

So, how do you delegate access? It’s actually pretty simple, you view GoDaddy’s visual guide or read below for step-by-step:

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Account: Start by signing into your GoDaddy account. Easy peasy.
  2. Access the Account Settings: Once you’re logged in, click on your username in the upper-right corner and select ‘Account Settings’ from the drop-down menu.
  3. Go to Delegate Access: Here’s where things get interesting. Click on ‘Delegate Access’ in the Account Settings menu.
  4. Invite a Delegate: On the Delegate Access page, you’ll see two sections – ‘People who can access my account’ and ‘People I can access’. Click on the ‘Invite to Access’ button in the ‘People who can access my account’ section.
  5. Fill in the Delegate’s Information: This is where you’ll put in my name and email address. Then, choose the access level you want to provide. For most website design tasks, ‘Domain Only’ access should suffice.
  6. Send the Invitation: Once you’ve filled in all the details, hit the ‘Invite’ button. I’ll get an email invitation to access your account, and we’re off to the races!

Remember, you can remove delegates or change their access level anytime you want from the same Delegate Access page.

I hope this guide has been helpful. If you have any questions or run into any issues, don’t hesitate to reach out. Happy delegating!

Once the project is done, read on to learn how to remove delegate access to your account.

Removing Delegates or Changing Their Access Level: A Step-by-Step Guide

We get it, things change. Maybe you don’t need someone to have access to your account anymore, or perhaps their role has evolved and you need to adjust their access level. No worries, you can easily manage this from the Delegate Access page. Here’s how:

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Account: Just like before, start by logging into your account.
  2. Access the Account Settings: Click on your username in the upper-right corner and select ‘Account Settings’ from the drop-down menu.
  3. Go to Delegate Access: Again, find ‘Delegate Access’ in the Account Settings menu and give it a click.
  4. Choose the Delegate: Now, you’ll see the list of people who have access to your account. Find the person you want to remove or whose access level you want to change.
  5. Remove or Change Access Level: If you want to entirely remove this person’s access, simply click on the ‘Remove’ button next to their name. If you want to change their access level, click on ‘Edit’, and then select the new level you’d like to assign.
  6. Save Changes: Don’t forget this step! Make sure to save any changes you’ve made.

And that’s it! You’re in control and can adjust access as needed. Remember, delegating access is all about making life easier while keeping your account secure. So go on, delegate away with confidence!

Although this process is quite simple, you want to avoid any mistakes, so I’ve gathered some of them to help put you at easy.

Common Mistakes to Avoid When Using the Delegate Access Feature

Alright, friends! We’ve covered quite a lot about using the Delegate Access feature on GoDaddy. Now, let’s talk about some common mistakes you’ll want to avoid. After all, we’re all about making your life easier and ensuring a smooth ride!

1. Giving More Access Than Necessary: It’s essential to only give the level of access that the delegate truly needs. While it might seem simpler to just give full access and be done with it, this can lead to unnecessary risks. Remember, “Domain Only” access is typically sufficient for most tasks.

2. Forgetting to Update Access Levels: As roles change, so do access needs. If a delegate’s role has evolved, make sure you adjust their access level accordingly. This isn’t a set-it-and-forget-it thing!

3. Not Utilizing the ‘People I can access’ Section: This side of the Delegate Access page is often overlooked, but it’s just as important. It’s where you can see whose accounts you have been given access to.

4. Neglecting to Regularly Review Your Delegates: It’s a good idea to periodically review who has access to your account. If someone no longer needs access, don’t hesitate to remove them. It’s all about maintaining security!

5. Ignoring the Confirmation Email: When you send an invitation to a delegate, they’ll receive a confirmation email. Until they accept the invite, they won’t have access. So remind them to check their inbox!

Avoiding these common mistakes will help you use the Delegate Access feature more effectively and securely. Remember, if you have any questions or if anything seems unclear, don’t hesitate to ask. We’re here to help!
