Invite a developer to access my GoDaddy account

By April 27, 2019 No Comments

You have bought a new domain for your company! That’s Great. Not everyone knows the stuff behind how websites works and it is not necessary too. Because you are already doing a great business and be proud of that.

If you’d prefer to let a professional on website development and design to take care of it, you can allow them to access your account without giving out your GoDaddy login details. GoDaddy calls this “delegating access”, and here’s how to set it up:

1. Login to GoDaddy and go to your account.

From there, you’ll see an Account Settings dropdown, from which you can chose Delegate Access.

In your GoDaddy account, choose Delegate Access from the Account Settings dropdown.

2. On the right, if you’re on a desktop machine, is the box People who can access my account.

Click the button there.

Click Invite to Access.

3. Enter the details of your developer.

Enter their name and the email address associated with their GoDaddy account. You can choose which level of access to give them, but I find that for most works Products and Domains is enough, However sometimes to propagate DNS Settings Full access is necessary, talk with your developer to know more.

Enter their details, and choose an account access level, Then click on Invite button. From there your developer will take care of the rest of the things.

The Developer will receive an email to accept access and can then log in to their own GoDaddy website and take care of the business at hand.
