Where do i change my cpanel password.

I just started a new account and I have two passwords, one for the Westhost account and one for the cpanel shared hosting service.

When I open the Wetshost account i can change that one but my cpanel does not have an option on the gray panel to change the password on any of the areas.

Upon creating a new Westhost account, you will receive two login credentials. The main control panel which can be accessed at http://cp.westhost.com will be the only password that you can change. The second password, the cPanel/FTP password, cannot be changed. This is so that your cp.westhost.com login can effectively log you in to cPanel. Thus the "change password" option will be greyed out.

If you would like an FTP password that is easier to remember, you can create an FTP user that has the same admin privileges as the main one. This, however, will only be FTP access.
