    At this time GoDaddy doesn't have the ability for multiple editors on the Websites + Marketing Product - You can delegate access to your GoDaddy account - but that is for the entire account not just your website

    Hi @MelodySharp,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    As @PL281 advises, delegate access to your account will be the best way to allow others to work on your website. Each of the people you're trusting with the website work will need their own GoDaddy account in order to access yours. (It's never a good idea to give multiple people your user name and password directly into the account.)

     

    You can use these instructions to provide that delegate access using the email address of each person allowed. When you choose the option for "Products, Domains. & Purchase", they will have the access needed to edit the website. Be aware that this permission also gives them the ability to: 

    • Make purchases on your behalf using your stored payment method.
    • Access your products (including product control panels) and cancel new products.
    • For domains, you can permit management actions, transfer actions, or both. For more info, see Assign delegate folder permissions.
