(Home >> Account Functions >> Password Modification)


This feature allows you to change passwords for any of your existing reseller or cPanel accounts.

You are able to make a new password without the original password, which can be useful if the original password has been lost, forgotten, or compromised.


Passwords are irretrievable. If a password is lost or forgotten, a new one must be created.

Change password

To change an account’s password:

  1. Enter the new password in the New Password text box.
