How do I reset my root password?

To reset your VPS root password, enter the VPS management panel at using the credentials sent to you in your VPS Welcome Email. 

From there, select the VPS you want to manage, then select the "Root/Admin Password" tab. Press the Change button.

You will be asked to confirm that you'd like the password changed. Once you confirm, a new password will be generated and displayed. It may take up to 5 minutes for the password change to fully complete.

Please note that your VPS root password is different than your VPS control panel password, and it is a good idea to change your password every 90 days. We strongly discourage using the same password for your VPS and your control panel account.

Please open a ticket if you have any questions.
