How to Safely Share Your HostGator Account Details with Your Web Developer


Since HostGator doesn't offer delegated access like some other platforms, sharing your login details is necessary. But don't worry! Here's a safe way to do it.

Step 1: Understand the Need

First, know why you're sharing access. Your web developer might need to manage your site's DNS settings or make other important changes. Remember, while sharing passwords isn't ideal, sometimes it's the only way.

Step 2: Use a Secure Password Manager

Before sharing, get a password manager like BitWarden. This tool keeps your shared passwords secure and accessible only to those you trust. This is what we use to keep our clients sensitive information secure, and make sure that whoever you share passwords with does the same. Watch this video to understand how to share passwords in BitWarden.

Step 3: Create a Unique Password

Your HostGator account password should be unique – don't reuse passwords from other accounts. Make it complex and hard to guess.

Step 4: Share Responsibly

When you're ready, share the password through the password manager. This is safer than sending it via email or text.

Step 5: Regularly Update Your Password

Change your password periodically, especially after your developer finishes their work. This keeps your account secure.


Sharing your HostGator account details can be done safely. Just use a secure method and keep your passwords unique and regularly updated. Your digital security is paramount!
