Outsourcing

Outsourcing an server allows you to assign the technical management of your machines to another Online account without giving full access to your account.

All additional services that might be linked with your server (failover IPs, RPN, options, ….) are billed in the account tho which the server belongs to.

Revoke an outsourcing

Revoking of an outsourcing can be done either from the technical account or from the account of the owner of the services in the same way.

To do it, you have to click on your user name, then on “Outsourcing” in the menu
