How To Reset A Sub-Account Password In cPanel

Normally, cPanel & WHM allows you to reset your sub-account password.

The password reset process sends a security code to the contact email address in cPanel's User Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Preferences >> User Manager).

If you do not specify a contact email address, the system displays a fake email address when you attempt to reset your password.

If you wish to reset your password, please contact our security team via
