Warning: The following information is for the administrator account of the server only. It is not applicable to subscription owners/users or customer accounts, because for those accounts it will be always Power User view.
Note: Information also might be not applicable for servers that have the view locked on the license level. To check that, contact the Customer/Partner Success department. The Service provider view is available for Web Pro/Web host editions only.
There are several product User Interface views available for you. Depending on the view used, features and settings may be located in different places or even enabled/disabled.

- Service Provider view – this view offers interfaces for use by the server administrator, resellers, and hosting users.
