How To Change WHM Root Password

Changing the password of each email account on the server is useless if the server itself is not secure. Updating your WHM password from time to time adds security to your server. See the steps below on how to change the WHM root password of your server.


NOTE: WHM access is only available on Vodien Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers.
