You should set it back to MD5 once you have typed it out. That way it's encoded in MD5. Is the password secure? That' a pretty vague question in a way - the knee-jerk reaction (of any hosting service) to that kind of question is, of course it is secure. However, passwords are only as secure as you make them. If you keep you passwords written on a post-it note visible on your desk, then it's not secure. Or, if you're using something that can easily be deduced, such as your middle name, your phone number, or something that is easily seen in your life that a hacker could try in order to gain access to your data, then it's not secure. From the aspect of the server, the data is as secure as we can make it. I'm not upset with your question or trying to be facetious in my answer. I just want make sure that you understand that when you ask, "is that password secure?" that you understand the factors involved in that question. We do strive to be one of the better hosts and provide safe, secure hosting servers as a result. Here's an article on security from our support center:
Who's your website security?
Additionally, our servers are monitored 24/7. The servers are physically secure and also involve a number of other security measures that we do not all list for matters of- security.
I hope this helps to answer your question. If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
