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 HostPresto! Client Area
To log into your client area, go to the following - [Client Area](https://hostpresto.com/my/clientarea.php).
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?](https://hostpresto.com/my/pwreset.php)' option.
