How Do I Change My cPanel Password?

This will not change your GreenGeeks password. To change your GreenGeeks password, see these instructions.

Changing Your cPanel Password

Log in to GreenGeeks. If you have lost or forgotten your GreenGeeks password you can reset it using the “Forgot Password?” link under the GreenGeeks login box.

From the GreenGeeks Dashboard, click “Hosting” on the left.


Find the service you want to change and click the “Manage” button on the far right.


If you only have one hosting account, it’ll be the only one available.

Click the “Change Password” link.

Change Password

Enter your password in the text box. Underneath the textbox, you will see a colored bar, which indicates the password strength. It is highly recommended to make sure it is a strong password (green).

Click on the “Change Password” button to finish.

  1. It’s a very confusing dialogue box: it gives no confirmation that you have actually changed your password, and it displays a live Change Password button almost all of the time, so that it seems to be saying that you haven’t changed your password yet.
