Login and reset your Control Panel password.
Make a good note of the new password.

Use the new Control Panel password to login to your Control Panel and reset your FTP password if needed:

  • Click on the Web Sites & Domains tab.
  • Click on Web Hosting Access.
  • Enter a new (FTP) password, confirm it and click OK to change it. Do NOT REUSE old passwords.
  • Make a note of the new FTP username /password combination for your record.

We recommend that you adhere to password-security best practices and use a unique, random password of at least 8 characters (15 is better) combining upper and lower-case letters, numbers and punctuation characters.
Do not re-use old passwords, passwords that you use on other accounts or passwords that spell out dictionary words.
