If you cannot find or recollect the password to your dedicated admin account or just would like to change it for higher security, there are a few ways you can do it. By the way, it is a good idea to alter a standard password right away after you have rented a server and you can also modify it from time to time to protect your server from hacking attacks.
Don’t forget that a strong password must consist of ten characters minimum including small and capital letters, digits and other symbols. Avoid existing words, repeated symbols, sequences of letters or numerals. Although the current post is devoted to recovering passwords for dedicated servers, this rule applies to both dedicated and virtual servers. So it can be equally useful for those who rent a dedicated server in USA or VPS hosting in Sweden.
If you have never changed your password, you can find it in your mail inbox. Visit HostZealot customer portal for instructions.
