Add user to domain


#1

It seems that the namespace for usernames is global for all DreamHost domains, so that a given username must be unique across all DreamHost domains.

If that is true, is it possible to ADD an existing username to my domain. There is a user I would like to authorize on my domain, but he already has that username in use on another domain.

I do not see any way to add him to my domain. Is it possible?


#2

No, that’s not really how our system has things set up. Basically, each domain is stored “inside” one user, so there’s currently no reasonable way to have a domain set to more than one user (as it only exists in one place at a time).


#3

Ah, so the domain is “inside” the user, not the other way around. I imagined the users “inside” the domains.
