How do I add people to work on/upload/setup my server without giving them my login information, etc.?

Posted February 10, 2015 2.4k views

Hey, I’m new to this stuff and have no programming skills whatsoever so dumb it down as much as possible for me.. I need to know how to give permission for others to work on/upload/setup my server (for a native iOS app) without handing over my account information.

Also, with this access what exactly do they have the ability to do and view? And how do I remove them when they are no longer permitted to have access?

Thanks so much anyone who answers!

The easiest way to do this would be to create a droplet and provide them with the login credentials for that droplet. They would then have full access to the droplet to set up your services but would not have access to your control panel account. Once they have completed their work you can reset the root password via the control panel to have a new one emailed to you.
