Authorized User

Common issues

Common problems with setting up authorized users include:

Assigned Services Missing

Issue: The authorized user does not see the assigned services in their account.

Cause: It is not enough to assign only a service group (domains, webhosting, etc.) to an authorized user, but also individual services.

Solution: Make sure that you have assigned the selected (or all) services to the user according to the Assign Services chapter.

Domain User Missing DNS Access

Issue: The user has access to the domain, but cannot edit DNS.

Cause: Domain and DNS are separate service groups.

Solution: Make both the domain and DNS available to the authorized user.

Incorrect Customer ID

Issue: There is an error: The customer account ID must not be the same as your customer account ID.

Cause: You are probably entering your customer account ID by mistake instead of the new admin’s account.

Solution: Find out and enter the login and ID of the foreign account to which you want to make the services available, according to the chapter Add an Authorized User.

Authorized User Doesn’t Have a WEDOS Account

Issue: My admin doesn’t have a WEDOS account.

Solution: Create an account for your admin. The account and service management are free. If the administrator does not want to use their own email address, they can create a new mailbox specifically for the purpose of managing WEDOS services.

FAQ

Question: The authorized user settings aren’t working properly, what should I do?
Answer: If your problem does not have a solution in the Common Issues chapter, tell us about it by asking a question on the Help forum.

Question: My customers run websites on my Webhosting/WMS. Should I set each of them up as an authorized user?
Answer: In this case, it is better to set each customer’s own FTP access and database. Do not add these customers as authorized users unless you have a good reason to do so.
