Question

Just curious

I've never used a hosting server before.
Is it possible to have the access locked with password under the cPanel? So that even if there were multiple manager logging into the server account, some of them still wouldnt be able to manage some certain web sites?

And of course I'm just asking.

Clarification Request
I'm taken aback.

Are your telling me that folk selling this service are not answering questions about their product? That's a sure sign you don't want to go with that company.

You've found a great question for your prospective hosting server company to see if they will support your needs.

Answer
If you're with a shared host

and are using their cPanel, you can create FTP accounts which only allow the user with access to that account to manage files in a particular directory, i.e., a particular site. They wouldn't have access to cPanel though, just access to the directory on the server you selected.

I don't think hosting providers can setup multiple users with different roles in cPanel, unless you have something like a reseller account.
