CloudPanel offers fully isolated sites on a system level for improved server security.
Hosting different sites and applications on the same server can be a risk in terms of security. In case an application gets hacked without isolated sites the full server gets compromised.
11. User Roles
Collaborate efficiently while working with multiple users and running several sites on the same server.
CloudPanel offers various user roles to restrict access and manage user privileges. Each role has specific permissions as shown below:
Admin Users with an Admin role have full permissions to the frontend, backend, admin area, and all sites. The Admin can add new Site Managers and Users.
Site Manager The Site Manager has full access to manage all sites but has no access to the admin area.
User The User role only has access to the assigned sites. They cannot access any other sites or areas of the panel.
