How to switch between HostRooster accounts?

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on how to switch between HostRooster accounts seamlessly. HostRooster offers the flexibility to switch roles between being a host or a guest, eliminating the need for separate accounts. This feature is particularly useful for users who may initially register as guests but later decide to become hosts, or vice versa. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process in an easy-to-understand manner.


Before we begin, make sure you have the following:

  • A HostRooster account (as either a guest or host).
  • Access to a web browser (Google Chrome is recommended, but any modern browser will suffice).

Step-by-Step Guide

1. Access HostRooster Website:

  • Open your preferred web browser (e.g., Google Chrome).
  • In the browser's address bar, type and press Enter.

2. Log In:

  • If you already have a HostRooster account, log in using your existing credentials. If not, you'll need to create an account before proceeding with this guide.

3. Locate Your Username:

  • Once logged in, find your username at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

4. Access the Dashboard:

  • Hover your mouse pointer over your username. A pop-up box will appear.
  • Among the options presented, click on "Dashboard."

5. Find the Switch Button:

  • On the dashboard, you'll notice a conspicuous red button positioned on the right-hand side of the screen. The label on this button will either read "Switch to Host" or "Switch to Guest," depending on your current account type.

6. Select Your Desired Role:

  • Click on the button that corresponds to the role you wish to switch to. If you initially registered as a guest but now want to become a host (or vice versa), this button will facilitate the transition.

7. Explore the New Dashboard:

  • Upon switching roles, your dashboard will reflect the changes:
    • As a host, your dashboard will display information related to hosting, such as your earnings for the day and your account balance.
    • As a guest, your dashboard will present details relevant to being a guest, including messages from hosts and your order history.

8. Utilize the Sidebar Options:

  • Depending on your role (host or guest), you will find a sidebar on the left-hand side of the dashboard.
    • Common options include messages, notifications, orders, addresses, and payment details. Some options may vary depending on your current role.
