In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of modifying an account password using WHM (Web Host Manager). This is a simple task, but it's essential for maintaining the security of your account.

Step 1: Logging into WHM

First, you need to log into your WHM account. Here's how:

  1. Open your web browser and navigate to your WHM login page.
  2. Enter your username and current password in the respective fields.
  3. Click on the Log in button to access your WHM dashboard.

Once you're logged into WHM, you need to navigate to the Password Modification interface. Follow these steps:

  1. On the dashboard, navigate to the Account Functions section.
  2. Click on Password Modification. This will take you to the interface where you can modify account passwords.

Step 3: Modifying the Password

Now you're ready to change your account password. Here's how:

  1. In the Select an Account section, find and click on the account that you want to modify.
  2. In the Enter New Password field, type your new password.
  3. Confirm the new password by typing it again in the Confirm New Password field.
  4. Click on the Change Password button to save the changes.

Choosing a strong password

Choose a password that includes a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and special characters. This will make it harder for others to guess your password.

Step 4: Confirmation

After you've changed your password, WHM will display a confirmation message. This message confirms that your password modification was successful.

Remember your new password

Make sure to remember your new password or store it in a secure place. If you forget your password, you will need to reset it, which can be a time-consuming process.


That's it! You've successfully modified your account password with WHM. Remember to periodically change your password to maintain the security of your account.
