It's a good idea to change your password regularly, particularly for the client area and cPanel. If it has been more then 6 months, then you definitely should consider updating your password. Updating passwords regularly is better and safer.

Here is how to create a secure password:

- Avoid using full words, especially names or words connected with you or your family (such as a family member's name or a pet).
- Make the password at least 8 characters long, or longer where permitted by the application/website.

Use a mix of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, special symbols, underscores and spaces (where accepted, as not all systems allow all things).

Here are a couple of examples of ways to remember secure password (don't copy these):

- To remember a password, you can use sentences, such as "I love dogs #1. They're mans best friend and always happy!" can become "Ild#1.Tmbfaah!".
- Also, words can be written with numbers or random capitals. So, "Trevor Wilmore" could become "Tr3v0r_W1lmor3".

Of course, you could also use a password manager or online password generator. The password managers allow you to have one (or more) master passwords to control the other login details, which lets you use random and strong passwords on all your accounts.

We constantly try to protect all accounts against any unauthorised access, but we can't protect against everything and an old or weak password could make things easier for those trying to gain access to your website, email account, or other apps/websites.

Update your password today, and schedule a regular reminder to change it frequently. By making passwords as strong as you can, you are protecting your online assets.
