Ownership change approval
This week we’re also presenting new feature for service ownership change. HostBiill allows clients to change service or domain owner and transfer ownership to other users. New functionality added to HostBill requires the new owner to accept the ownership before it could be assigned.
In General Settings->Other->Client Permissions you can now decide how the service owner change is being processed: either after client change service to new order it can be transferred immediately or each request needs to be approved by the new owner.
How to proceed with service ownership change
If the client want to assign the service/domain to another owner they need to use “Change owner” option in service details and enter new owner email address. The transfer is then assigned with ‘pending’ status and until not approved by the new owner it can be cancelled.
The recipient gets notified via email (using the new email template), via portal notification and on the page with transfer confirmation. Once the transfer is approved (or rejected) by the recipient, the previous owner will also get notifications.
