How to grant roles (= grant permissions to others)?


Roles and Permissions


You can always invite additional individuals (besides you) to administrate your domain(s). For this, you can assign so-called "roles" to other people, which define what sort of access is granted.


Important: These "roles" solely allow you to grant access to your domains within, they do not have any impact on what is shown in Whois as published contacts.

As you invite someone to access to your domains, a special link is sent to the email address you provide. 

choose permissions

If the invitee does not already have a login, he will get a chance to register when he clicks the link in this email.

Enter a "Description" to name the individual grant to be able to identify your grants later.
You can always issue grants or revoke existing grants in My Domains.


In case you are a Reseller, you may also use the additional option 'Direct assignment' to assign roles. This means that you can assign permission to another account, which takes effect instantly, and no invitation will be sent. This means that with "Internal Transfer" and 


"Direct assignment" you can move (transfer) domains between different - also your own -
