Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Reset my primary FTP password in Linux Hosting

Your FTP password (which is also your cPanel login password) lets you upload files to your Linux Hosting account through an FTP client. You can also use this password to log directly into cPanel without going through your hosting account.

When you first set up cPanel, it generates both a login name and this password for you. If you forgot your FTP password, or want to change it from the default, here's how to reset it.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
    click manage
  3. In the account Dashboard, under Settings, next to your Password click Change.
    select change
  4. Enter a new Password, confirm it, and then click Change Password.

Next steps

  • To log directly in to cPanel, go to http://myDomainName/cpanel, where myDomainName is your domain and its domain suffix, like coolexample.com. You'll need your cPanel login and new password.
  • You can use an FTP client (like FileZilla) to connect to your hosting account with this username and password.
