How do I change the email password in cPanel?


Email is an important part of everyday life. It is used for various purposes, from invoices to newsletters and much more. Therefore, it is important to use a strong, secure and complex password for email accounts that contain confidential information or really anything personal!

It is always beneficial to keep the hosting environment on your end secure. For this reason, we always recommend using more complex passwords for your cPanel accounts, email accounts and FTP accounts.

For security reasons, we recommend using a password manager to create and securely store long and complex passwords yourself. Regardless, passwords can be forgotten, stored incorrectly (ever copied a password with an extra space?), or laboriously passed on when needed, which should generally be avoided for liability reasons.

Use cPanel password generator to generate a random password with a strong combination for your email account.
