Do you trust letting others in? I wouldn't let too many in because of a hacking threat. In fact, I'd limit cPanel access to two admins and constantly change passwords.

This is one of those things that involves using common sense. You should only give someone access to your cPanel if you trust them. It's also best to limit access in general. It's too easy for someone to accidentally screw something up if you have a bunch of people using the cPanel or making changes via FTP.

The problem with Cpanel that there ISN"T a "user level" management for that. For example you cannot allow someone to have Cpanel level access while limiting them to write only for example (so they cannot delete and read for example). And so on.

If it's actually needed. 99% of the time no one else really needs it except for one person
It really depends, if you got a heavy project/business that call for "around the clock" there will be more than one person having access to a system. Even larger hosting companies allow their admins to access their nodes so if "one goes" either permanently or not then business can keep on rolling.

Not having even a single trusted and active person to "take over" on a productive project/business is asking for troubles down the road...

Oh, yea! For sure a large business would do that. I was simply saying for one of my projects. I don't ever start anything with 5+ employees.

Absolutely for instance I am starting up a Minecraft community. I may not have staffs right now but when it get a constant player count and moderation and such are needed? I will of course slowly add them in as time and logic make sense. :smiley:
