How to change your cPanel Password

You may wish to change your cPanel password to something more memorable or for security reasons. It is recommended, for security purposes, that the password is changed every month, with the password itself being mixed alphanumeric characters to make it difficult to guess.

Log into cPanel via your Client Area

To log into your client area, go to the following - Client Area.

You will then be required to enter your login credentials for your account by completing the 'Email Address' and 'Password' sections followed by the 'Login' button. If you have forgotten your password, you can reset this via the 'Forgot Password?' option.

To help with security, you may want to consider using a password generator tool such as 'Strong Password Generator'.

Enter the same password again in the 'Confirm New Password' box.

Click the 'Save Changes' button to complete the change of password.

You will have now successfully changed your cPanel password.

Please note - changing the cPanel password changes the password for cPanel and FTP main login only, your client area login (e.g. the one where your username is your email address ) stays the same.
