Users / Groups / Permissions / Folders

In DNS Made Easy each admin user has the ability to define additional user accounts which can be segmented into groups that differ based on permissions. Domains can then be placed into different folders which are delegated to specific users or groups. This tutorial will walk through the processing up two additional users, assigned to two different groups with different permissions, and placing domains in a folder for management by the group it was assigned.
