What is delegate access?

This article will explain how you can use delegate access within your 123 Reg account.

Delegates are users that have been granted access to your account and can manage your purchased products or buy new ones on your behalf.

You can also grant delegates Management and Transfer Access to your domain names. Those with Management Access can update the contact details for your domains, lock/unlock them as well as edit their nameservers, hostnames and forwarding services. Those with Transfer Access can move domains between accounts, delete domains or list them for sale. For details on how to do this, please read the following article: How do I assign folder permissions for delegates?

When you invite someone to be a delegate on your account, they must have an account with 123 Reg. If they don’t, then they will be asked to create one before their invitation can be accepted. Furthermore, since delegates won’t have access to personal details such as passwords or payment details, they won’t be able to hijack your account.

To add someone as a delegate, please follow the instructions outlined below.

Please note: this article was originally created for our current Control Panel. As such, the steps outlined below may not be relevant for domain names purchased before September 2023 as we will be migrating them to our current Control Panel between August and December 2023.
