How do I change my cPanel password?

Follow these steps to change your cPanel account password

  1. Login to the cPanel
  2. Click Change Password
  3. In the box to the right of Old Password, provide your old password.
  4. In the box to right of New Password, provide the new password. This password should contain uppercase and lowercase letters, as well as numbers and non-numeric symbols. (example. aB3#$f^&G*1)
  5. In the box to the right of New Password (again), provide the password once again for verification.
  6. Do NOT uncheck the box for "Allow MySQL password change". (This does not reset any passwords for your database users; rather, it keeps you able to login to phpMyAdmin via cPanel.)
  7. Click the Change your password button.

You have now just changed your password. Before you proceed, you will be prompted to log back into cPanel.
