Hostwinds offers many options to help make building your website simple and easy with any of our Shared or Business Hosting services. In addition to our Softaculous Apps Installer (which can install services like WordPress, Magento, Drupal, Joomla, and more), we also offer Weebly. Weebly is a drag-and-drop website builder, that lets you pick a starting theme and modify it however you desire with little or no coding experience required.
Weebly’s Settings are also very flexible and can be set up the way you desire. In this article, we’ll go over the Members tab in your Weebly Settings, discussing what every option is, and how it affects your site.
[notification type=”alert-warning” close=”false” ]The Membership registration and management services for Weebly require a Pro or Business Weebly account. Hostwinds provides the Connect Weebly account for free as a part of our hosting packages, but can assist in upgrading your services. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact us via email to sales[at]hostwinds.com, via a ticket to Sales, or talk directly to one of our 24/7 LiveChat or Phone (1-888-404-1279) Agents and we are always more than happy to help you.[/notification]

Login | Register
This section allows you to determine whether there is a visible link on your website for users to log in to their accounts if they are members. You may also separately choose whether you not you want users to be able to sign up and register for your website.
The Members section lets you add new users to your website, who are able to then view any restricted or private pages that they have permissions for.
Here you can create and manage groups, which can have members assigned to them so that they all share the same permissions and level of access. In this way you do not need to manually manage all of your users, and can instead have them gain the permissions provided to the group as a whole.
