This article walks you through changing your cPanel password if you are already logged into cPanel.

Once you have logged into your cPanel, you can change your cPanel password in the Preferences section:


To see it in action, please watch the flash tutorial linked to the left.

In the previous tutorial in our getting started with cPanel series we showed you how to use the video tutorials within cpanel. In the next  tutorial series we will discuss Fantastico Deluxe.

This will only work if you already have a cpanel password. If you've not been given a password, you'll forever have to login to cpanel through AMP. This is annoying and adds extra steps.

Hello Alain,

Thank you for contacting us. Your cPanel password is created when you login to AMP for the first time, and can be changed at anytime using AMP; here is a guide.

You can change the password in cPanel, as long as you know the original password. If it is not working, please contact Live Support, so they can investigate the issue.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
