Change your password
For when you want a new password, its always a good idea to do this regularly (say once a month)
You must first log into your cPanel hosting control panel - if you have lost or forgotten your username and/or password, you must email support and ask for the details (lost passwords will mean a password reset).
Once logged in, we will proceed with changing your password ...
First, click on the Change Password icon in the Preferences section
You will now be presented with a Change Password page which requires you to supply your old and new passwords. Once entered, click the Change your password now! button and the change will take place. You will have to log into your control panel again with your new password to continue using it (now pressing any link, such as the 'Home' or 'Go back' links, will result in the user name and password prompt box appearing). Please note that there is some very good advice regarding the choosing and handling of passwords on that Password Change page, and if you are security conscious (as you should be as a webmaster), we hope you will heed the advice well..
Protect your password:
Don't write down your password, memorize it. In particular, don't write it down and leave it anywhere, and don't place it in an unencrypted file! Use unrelated passwords for systems controlled by different organizations. Don't give or share your password, in particular to someone claiming to be from computer support or a vendor unless you are sure they are who they say they are. Don't let anyone watch you enter your password. Don't enter your password on a computer you don't trust. Use the password for a limited time and change it periodically.
Choose a hard-to-guess password:
Our system will try to prevent you from choosing a really bad password, but it isn't foolproof; create your password wisely. Don't use something you'd find in a dictionary (in any language or jargon). Don't use a name (including that of a spouse, parent, child, pet, fantasy character, famous person, or location) or any variation of your personal or account name. Don't use accessible information about you or your environment, such as your phone number, license plate or social security number. Don't use a birthday or a simple pattern, such as backwards, followed by a digit, or proceeded by a digit. Instead, use a mixture of upper and lower case letters, as well as digits or punctuation. When choosing a new password, make sure it's unrelated to any previous password. Use long passwords (say 8 characters long). You might use a word pair with punctuation inserted, a pass phrase (an understandable sequence of words), or the first letter of each word in a pass phrase.
