Users :: Passwords Description

You can change any of your account passwords (shell/ftp users, mailboxes, vpn users) by going to the Users > Passwords area of our web panel. From there you can have your passwords emailed to you, have us generate a new random password for you, or change your password (if you have the old password).

For security reasons, we suggest that passwords:

  • have at least 8 characters, at least two of which are numeric
  • not be based on any recognizable words
  • contain no personal information that could be linked back to you
Please note that our password checker is very stringent (no english words or passwords derived from english words), so it may be easiest to just have us generate a random password for you!
