Multiple "accounts"/Web Panels?

I have a client who wants to do an announcement list (members of a community club). I want them to administer it themselves.

If I understand the Web Panel correctly, the announcement lists are associated with an “account”, (i.e. a separate billing entity), and not a “service”, a “domain”, or a “user”.

Thus, if I want my client to administer their own announcement list, I must create a new “account” for them. True?

Now, if that is true, here’s the important question: Will the client with the separate account be able to log on to their own Web Panel with a username and password different than my NDN ID and password?

Or, instead, must I create a new NDN ID for the client so that they will have their own Web Panel?

Guidance appreciated!

You don’t have to associate an NDN ID with a specific mail or FTP uiser, though you can if you want. If all they need to do is administer one mailing list, then the best thing to do is:

  1. Create the mailing list.
  2. Go to and create a new ID for your client (you may need to log out before doing this)
  3. Go to “Account Privileges” in the web panel (after logging back in if you logged out before), under the “Home” heading in the side menu.
  4. Click on the link at the bottom that says “Grant privileges to a new NDN ID”, and enter the ID you just created when asked.
  5. In the (very long) checklist that comes up, give them privileges for their domain, and for the mailing list you created.

That’s it! No separate billing entity required. I’ve created NDN IDs for several of my clients.




Many thanks!
