With our multi-user feature, you can create and manage a team, giving them access to various aspects of your WordPress websites, applications, or databases As mentioned in our how user roles work article, there is a special role: the Company Owner.

This role is exactly the same as a Company Administrator in all but one respect; only Company Owners can close down an account or transfer company ownership (to a Company Administrator in the same account). Each company can have one and only one owner, but it is possible to transfer ownership between users.

Important Notes

To transfer ownership to another user, the following requirements must be met:

  • You must be logged in to MyKinsta as the Company Owner.
  • The user you want to transfer ownership to must be a Company Administrator.

Transferring Ownership

Log in to MyKinsta and go to the Users section. Click on the Transfer ownership button on the right-hand side of your user’s row.

In the modal/pop-up that appears, select an available Company Administrator in the New Owner dropdown. Enter your password and click on the Confirm button to transfer ownership.
