Change Password


You can change the main password to your web hosting account. Before you begin, make sure you have closed all windows that are currently open and associated with your control panel.


Protect Your Password

Do not write down your password, memorize it. In particular, do not write it down and leave it anywhere, and do not 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. Do not let anyone watch you enter your password. Do not 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.
