Change Your Control Panel Password

Follow the steps below to change your Control Panel password (the password for your entire account), provided you know the current password.

Alternatively, you can choose a new password by using the form at the bottom of this article.

Please note:
Keeping your password complex by using a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters will make it harder for someone else to guess your password and access your account. If you forget your password, a reset link can be sent to your e-mail account, but this means your e-mail account should also use a strong password to prevent unauthorized access.
Step 1
Log in to your 1&1 Control Panel and select the relevant package.
Step 2
Click Password from the My Data panel.
1&1 Control Panel

Step 3
Enter your current password in the first text box. Then, enter the new password into the New Password field below. Click the Change button when complete.

Please note:
The password is case-sensitive and must be a minimum of 8 characters, containing a combination of both uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters.
