Web Hosting - Additional Publishing and Management Access

All Web Hosting domains include a primary Secure FTP role-based login to the server to publish content. The Plesk control panel software does not support multiple Secure FTP logins per domain.

Customers who are partnered with external (non-UW) website consultants/developers who may require server access, please see: Web Hosting - External Developer Access.

Options to Segregate Access

If your account has multiple publishers of content, you can restrict access to the SecureFTP and/or Administrative control panel credentials with one of the following options:

  • Use a Content Management System (CMS)
    • WiscWeb CMS is a free option available to users on the UW-Madison campus.
    • WordPress CMS Hosting is available with no setup fee and support starting at the Nickel service level.
  • Add additional domains to the existing account (mydept.wisc.edu/mysite ⇒ mysite.mydept.wisc.edu). For assistance, see Web Hosting - Adding Domains to Your Account.

Note: It is possible to manually create multiple secondary SFTP logins, but this is performed outside of the Plesk management software and has caveats dependent on the platform. To request additional STFP logins, email webhosting@doit.wisc.edu with a brief explanation of functionality and access requirements.
