If you have more than one person that manages your MacHighway client area, you can set up Sub Accounts for these users so you do not need to provide them with your password. You can also restrict what access these accounts have to modify your services. Let us take a look at Sub Accounts.

What is a Sub Account?
A sub account can be divided into to sections:
You can add contacts to your account that are separate from your main contact information. There can be many reasons that this would be handy. A common reason to set up an alternate contact for your MacHighway client area is for setting up a separate Billing address for your account. Depending on your situation, you may wish to create a billing contact with a separate billing address. You can set this address to be present on any invoices generated for your account. You can choose what notification emails are sent to your Contacts.
We will discuss setting up a new contact below.
A user account can access your MacHighway client area, but you can control what sections of the client area that this user has access to. This can be also be useful in many situations. It could be that you have several people on your team that need access to the client area. User accounts will ensure that each user has their own password so passwords are not shared. Or it could be that you want your web developer to have access to your hosting account and domain, but not be able to see your invoices or other services.
We will discuss setting up a new contact below.
