Hi All,

I don't know about other hosting companies but when I hire a employee I don't want to provide them complete access to the whole system. If they get pissed off they can single handlly cripple a company by doing multiple things to domains. It would be nice to add user but limit them certain access to areas and or duties like create, view only this way they cannot mess anything up either.

 

Please provide your thoughts on this topic and hopefully we can get this on the ToDo list ASAP.

Someone with admin rights can do real damage. Think about giving someone root access to the machine.

 

Giving someone only access to a domain reduces that risk, but not really. He can still screw things up badly.

 

It must be noted if someone does that, this will cause civil and possibly even crime law consequences. It is like an employee driving a truck and if he destroys on purpose it he will face some serious legal consequences later. Plus maybe his next employer might give you a call and ask if you can recommend him.

 

Backup, backup! At least you can limit the damage this way and move back to the last backup.

I understand what you are saying but it would be PROACTIVE and responsible to have system that limit this possibility. If a customer has to be told "sorry you lost all your voicemails from today and your phones were down for 2 hours because he had a pissed off employee" you think they one care but more importantly they have our trust that we wouldn't allow full admin access to the system. Should be able to create other admin users where they can only view and create as I original said. This would make it possible to have employee access the system without fear of this event from ever happening.

 

This is not a problem for us now but as we grow I don't personally want to be responsible for every question or add.
