About enterprise accounts
With GitHub Enterprise Server, you can create an enterprise account to give administrators a single point of visibility and management for their billing and license usage.
An enterprise account allows you to manage multiple GitHub organizations and GitHub Enterprise Server instances. Your enterprise account must have a handle, like an organization or personal account on GitHub. Enterprise administrators can manage settings and preferences, like:
- Member access and management (organization members, outside collaborators)
- Billing and usage (GitHub Enterprise Server instances, user licenses, Git LFS packs)
- Security (single sign-on, two factor authentication)
- Requests and support bundle sharing with GitHub Enterprise Support
Enterprise accounts are currently available to GitHub Enterprise Cloud and GitHub Enterprise Server customers paying by invoice. Billing for all of the organizations and GitHub Enterprise Server instances connected to your enterprise account is aggregated into a single bill. For more information about managing your GitHub Enterprise Cloud subscription, see "Viewing the subscription and usage for your enterprise account." For more information about managing your GitHub Enterprise Server billing settings, see "Managing billing for GitHub Enterprise."
For more information about the differences between GitHub Enterprise Cloud and GitHub Enterprise Server, see "GitHub's products." To upgrade to GitHub Enterprise or to get started with an enterprise account, contact GitHub's Sales team.
GitHub Enterprise administrators can use an enterprise account to view and manage user licenses on their GitHub Enterprise Server instance. To get started with an enterprise account, contact GitHub's Sales team, and see "Managing your GitHub Enterprise license."
