As your site continues to grow, you may be needing additional help in upkeep or posting content to your site. Adding additional admins or users will help you do just that. The people you add will be able to get "behind the scenes" and upload content or make changes to your site. However, each title has different levels of restrictions, keep that in mind when adding another person to the development team of your site.
Users can register on your site and you can choose whether to manually or automatically approve them. There are three different security levels, User, Privileged, and Admin.
- Regular users will have access to secured areas of the site, but cannot change anything.
- Privileged users can perform some functions like moderate forums and upload images.
- Admins have full access, except for the billing account. Pages and Forums can be secured so that only those that are logged in can see them.
