Your cPanel password can be reset from within the Account Management Panel (AMP) or after logging into cPanel. In this guide we will show you how to do both.
Did you know? You can manage multiple cPanel accounts with our Reseller Hosting packages.
Reset Your Password Within AMP

Thoughts on “How to Change Your cPanel Password”
how stupid if you can not ant password how the hell do you then do it
You can reset your cPanel password from AMP, even if you don’t know the original password.
Can I use the SAME pass word for cPanel and AMP or they should have 2 different password?
You should always use different passwords for cPanel and AMP. AMP is a much higher ‘level’ of access than cPanel and, to follow security best practices, you never want to use the same password for two accounts– especially when one of those accounts controls the other. This is especially important if you give an employee or a developer cPanel access. There is no software rule stopping you from using the same password, but it’s strongly encouraged that you use a different secure password for each.

I recommend changing your password in AMP, since you do not need to know the original password. You can also view your username in the Account Technical Details section.
is the “support center login” on this page yet something else that needs another username and/or password?
I actually know my cpanel username and password–that is, I have a record of it–but since I can’t login I don’t know which is wrong.
Your cPanel user name and password are not the same as a login for our Support Center. You will need to create an account separately for the Support Center, and login with those credentials instead.

On my reseller account, for a few of the Word Press sites, any change in the cPanel Password results in the site going down, with a message “Cannot connect with database”. Changing it back to what it was before brings the site back up. Why is that, and how can I change the Password for those sites?
cPanel password changes should have no effect on the sites themselves. If it continues, you may want to contact the Live Support to see if they can find out the source of the issue.

How do I reset my password?
I can’t remember my password to get into cpanel
Sorry to hear you’re having problems with your cPanel password. The information provided above is for recovering a cPanel password for an account hosted with InMotion Hosting. If your domain is NOT hosted with us, then you will need to speak with your host in order to determine how to recover you cPanel password. The instructions above for resetting the cPanel password would require that you already be able to login to the cPanel – and the Account Management Panel (AMP) instructions do not apply to non-Inmotion Hosting accounts.
Hello! I tried to login into my cpanel using a password that i’ve created, which is not the same of amp login, but i can’t connect. I’m sure that the password is right, what can i do? I tried to reset password but did not work.
Luca Di Bello
Be sure that you have the correct cPanel username as this would not be the same as AMP. Your username will be listed in AMP within the header for those account options. This will be 7 characters ending with a number.
hello, my website has been hacked, for while now please help me Inmotion…!!\

plz tell me how to reset the website password and Username from Cpanel.
not the cpanel password
There can be many passwords involved in a website. Which password did you mean? You said not the cPanel website. Did you mean the AMP password by chance? If not, please give a few more details.
To reset your password you need to remember the old password… what do I do if I don’t?
what if I don’t know my cPanel password??
The section entitled “Reset your Password within AMP” is how you can reset your cPanel password without knowing the current one.
We just recently fired another employee. I just want to make sure that person cannot access their old company account without the assistance of our web administrator (via the master cpanel account) Please advise.
Hello Ms. Business Exec,
As this guide explains you can change your cPanel password, which would deny access to anyone that still just had the old password to access the account.
Now take note that you might want to also update your billing and contact info in AMP to ensure your ex-employee doesn’t retain any control over not just your cPanel, but your account with us in general.
We verify accounts with the last 4 digits of the credit card on file, or the original cPanel password of the account. So if this ex-employee knows this information, you can request to update it in your ticket.
I wish to know how to create another user account for a lower administrative level?
