FAQ #1222

What is the master password and what is it needed for?

 

The master password serves solely for logging into the services of your package, for example, into your FTP account or for network encryption via SSH. It is not possible to log in to your customer service area with the master password. With the master password, no contractual changes can be assigned in the STRATO customer service area. Thus, you can inform other users from your webhosting package of the master password without them being able to change contractual settings or master data from the package in the customer service area.
