The act of sharing login credentials with others can lead to severe outcomes, spanning from personal embarrassment to financial losses or even legal accountability. As a recommended practice, online credentials should not be shared with anyone. It is advisable to opt for providers that offer a unique private login for every user to a shared account. This approach offers several advantages, including authenticated access for every user, eliminating the need for shared login details, and enabling each user to easily and effectively implement two-factor authentication (2FA).

Multiple User Logins

As part of our Domain and Account Management Toolkit, provides enhanced account security by allowing the creation of unique login credentials for as many users as you wish.

In conjunction with unique account credentials for each user, the following additional safeguards can be employed to further increase the security of your account:

Two Factor Authentication

Fortify your account against hijacking with Webnames two-factor authentication using Google Authenticator (or any other standard TOTP app) or SMS..

Role-Based Permissions

Reduce risk by assigning authorized users different roles, levels of account access, and domain management capabilities according to the their role or position within your organization. Assign users different roles based on their use cases and domain management requirements.

Parent-Child Accounts

From your master "Parent" account, create and manage "Child" accounts for business units and clients. Control, manage and oversee Child access, pricing, billing and account permissions.

Account Lock

Further protect access to your account by restricting account access to an approved IP or range of IP addresses. Enhance your security in the event of a password leak or rogue employee.

Account Activity Tracker

Keep master oversight of all the actions taken in your portfolio. Drill down by domain, username, timestamp and bill/invoice number. Every entry is contextualized with system notes and updated in real time for complete transparency.
