Add user to your database

Every created database will have a standard user with read and write rights. If you want to create extra users, follow the steps below.

Tip: only the standard user has write access, the extra created users only have read access.

Follow this in the control panel (for both MySQL and MS SQL):

  1. Go to “My products”> “Web hosting”> Click on “manage” next to your domain name.
  2. In the menu on the left you choose “Databases”.
  3. Here you see a list of databases. Click on the user icon next to the database for which you want to create a user (see image).
  4. Enter a name for the new user below and click on “Add”.
  5. Choose a password and confirm to add the user.
