Password strength is essential in web hosting; we highly recommend using the Password Generator to create your password. Follow the tips below to keep your password safe.

Protect your password:

Don’t write down your password, memorize it. In particular, don’t write it down and leave it anywhere, and don’t 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. Don’t let anyone watch you enter your password. Don’t 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:

  • The system attempts to prevent particularly insecure passwords, but it is not foolproof.
  • Do not use words that are in a dictionary, names, or any personal information (for example, your birthday or phone number).
  • Avoid simple patterns. Instead, use UPPER and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols. Make sure that your password is at least eight characters long.
  • When you choose a new password, make certain that it is not related to your previous passwords.
You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. If you are using a public computer, for security reasons, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before closing.
