  1. Log in to Gateway using your GoDaddy login.
  2. Under the cPanel hosting account you want to change, click Settings.
  3. Click the Password tab.
  4. Enter a New cPanel Password, and then click Change Password.

Note: If you want to change the password for your non-primary FTP users, see Edit FTP users in cPanel hosting.

  • You can use an FTP client - such as FileZilla - to connect to your hosting account with this username and password.
