GitHub Enterprise Cloud includes the option to create an enterprise account, which enables collaboration between multiple organizations and gives administrators a single point of visibility and management. For more information, see "About enterprise accounts."
If you currently use GitHub Enterprise Cloud with a single organization, we encourage you to create an enterprise account. If you pay by invoice, you can create an enterprise account yourself on GitHub. If not, you can contact our sales team to create an enterprise account for you.
An enterprise account is included in GitHub Enterprise Cloud, so creating one will not affect your bill.
When you create an enterprise account, your existing organization will automatically be owned by the enterprise account. All current owners of your organization will become owners of the enterprise account. All current billing managers of the organization will become billing managers of the new enterprise account. The current billing details of the organization, including the organization's billing email address, will become billing details of the new enterprise account.
If the organization is connected to GitHub Enterprise Server or GitHub AE via GitHub Connect, upgrading the organization to an enterprise account will not update the connection. If you want to connect to the new enterprise account, you must disable and re-enable GitHub Connect.

To create an enterprise account, your organization must be using GitHub Enterprise Cloud.
If you pay by invoice, you can create an enterprise account directly through GitHub. If you do not currently pay by invoice, you can contact our sales team to create an enterprise account for you.
