Hosts (also known as super users) have full permissions to all sites within the DNN instance. Only a host can promote/demote a user account to/from a host account.


Hosts can revoke permissions from or demote another host.

Host accounts that were created from Host > Advanced Settings (double-gear tab) > SuperUser Accounts > Add New User cannot be demoted to a regular user. To create host accounts that can be demoted, create the user account from Users > Add New User, and then promote the new user to host.
