What is a web user and how can I manage one?
Posted by Karmjit Grewal on 14 March 2017 06:57 PM

A web user is a user account within a hosting plan.

It is used to define locations for personalized web pages with individual FTP access. The result of creating a web user is a subdirectory within your domain.

A user belongs to a role. The role is composed by the control option that are given at a user.
