Adding Contacts / Sub-Accounts has been replaced with Users and Accounts

More information coming soon as we introduce a new user management system. It allows a single user access to multiple client accounts. It clearly separates authentication and authorization from services, billing, and support. It's also a simple, powerful, flexible way for you to manage your accounts and grant access to it to other users.


If you have a need to allow others to log in to your KartHost Customer Center account to manage your web sites or just your account you can set up Contacts, and Sub-accounts and personally set the permissions and what emails they will be getting from KartHost.

Also, you can set up a Contact if you have more than one email you want to use with your account. You can do this with Contacts and Sub-Accounts.


Follow these steps on setting up a Contact or Sub-Account.

1) From your KartHost Customer Center home page (portal client area) click on Hello, Your Name!. ("Your Name" will be replaced with the owners account first name). From the resulting drop down menu, click on "Contacts/Sub-Accounts"

4 Sub-Accounts) Contacts do not have login capability, however if you wish to add login capability to your account then you will want to turn an existing Contact or your new Contact into a Sub -Account. You have FULL control over what areas of your KartHost Customer Center your Sub-Account has access too as shown from the image below. You will also need to assign a strong password to your Sub-Account as well.

Remember for LOGIN PURPOSES your "Sub Account" will use the Email address and Password that is in the account you created.

A) Click the box next to "Tick to configure as a sub-account with client area access" this will expose the Sub-Account Permissions area and password fields for the Sub-Account.
B) Select all the permissions you wish to give this Sub-Account, if you wish to give the sam as the master account check all the boxes

Recommendation - To logout of the Customer Center and then login again with the new Sub-Account you created to confirm the account and test that you have given your Sub-Account all the required permissions or to check to see if you have given to many. Just log out and log back in again as the master account to adjust the settings as required.
