To change your Account Portal and cPanel and Forum and account FTP password, you first need to login to the Account Portal

How to log-in to your Account Portal

Once logged in

click on [ Account Settings ] at top of page

click 0n [ Update Password ]

enter your new password in [ New password ]

enter that same password in [ Confirm password ]


click on [ Set ]

Remember:
This will update your Account Portal AND your cPanel AND your Forum AND your account FTP password
(same password used by all 4)

Note: If you use a FTP client such as FileZilla or a CMS that has FTP - you need to change its FTP password to the new one


Be tricky! Your password must be at least 5 characters and no more than 32 characters

If you enter less than 5 characters the system will tell you - if you enter more than 32 characters the system will NOT tell you and cuts it off at 32 characters

You can use any of these characters - but not a space(blank)
upper ==>ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ<==
lower ==>abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz<==
number ==>1234567890<==
special ==>~!@#$%^&*()_+{}|:"<>?`-=[]\;',./<==


[edit] Your password should

  • not contain a word found in a dictionary
  • not contain common name of - persons - places - things
  • not be used anywhere else
  • contain at least one upper - one lower - one number - one special character
  • be a least 9 characters long
