How to Change your cPanel Password

Here's how to change your cPanel control panel's password:

  1. Log in to the WHC Client Area, using your email address and password (these are NOT the same as your cPanel username and password). 
  2. Click Hosting & Websites (or Servers if you have a Cloud or Dedicated service) and, if you manage multiple services with WHC, click on the service for which you wish to change the password
  3. Click on the 'gear' icon (located on the top-right), then click Change cPanel Password
  4. Enter and confirm the new password, and click Save Changes. Note that only secure passwords are accepted.

Note: In the old Client Area, you can access this setting via My Services > Change cPanel Password.

You're done!

Pro tip: Your cPanel username and password are also used for your (S)FTP connections.
