Now we can think about what our new password will be and in the box next to the letters ‘new password’ we place our selection. You will need to confirm this in the ‘New Password (again) box and if all ok you will be able to move on. Take note of the Password strength and here the best possible score would be 100/100. If you select one with a score less than 50 cPanel won’t allow you to move on, which is a bit of a failsafe to ensure that you are unlikely to be hacked.

Always remember to keep the password safe and it is best not to write it down but memorise it. If you making the changes in a public environment be careful that others aren’t watching you make the changes and never give the password to anyone else.

Most of all just be very careful. This is the end of the tutorial thank you.
