Delegate GoDaddy Access

GoDaddy offers many products and services related to building websites.  This can create problems when you need to share access to your account with someone when you don’t want them to be able to access your entire account. Their solution is Delegate Access.

What is Delegate Access in GoDaddy?

GoDaddy’s delegate access feature allows GoDaddy account holders to grant another person permission to access and manage specific parts of their account without giving them the account’s password. This means you can let someone else, like a web developer or a colleague, handle tasks such as updating your website, managing domains, or setting up email accounts on your behalf, while keeping your login credentials private. You can control what areas of your account can be accessed and can revoke the access at any time, giving you full control over your account.

To simplify more, when you give delegate access to your GoDaddy account, you are sharing access to certain services that you decide within your account.

How to delegate access in GoDaddy

To add a user to your GoDaddy account, you need to:

  1. Log into GoDaddy
  2. Find your name in the upper right corner.
  3. Click on the down arrow next to your name and then select “Account Settings”
  4. Then on the left you will see another sub menu labeled “Account Settings”
  5. Click the down arrow there, and then “Delegate Access”

Why use Delegate Access?

Security and convenience are the main reasons.

  1. You do not have to share your account username and password.
  2. You do not have to coordinate with 2 level logins like receiving a code to your phone that you then have to share with the user trying to access your account.
  3. You only share access to the products that you want.
  4. You have full control to remove the access.

As a web developer, when I request that you give access to me  all that I need is access to Products & Domains.

Then, when I log in to my GoDaddy account, I will have access to your account without needing to log in to a separate account or know your login credentials.   When we are all done working together, you remove the delegated access, and access to your account no longer shows in my account.

I hope this explains how to access GoDaddy delegate functionality. If something is still not clear, let me know.

You can log in here to GoDaddy to delegate access to me, or send me the email address associated with your account and I will initiate the request.
