Changing Your Password

In order to change the password on your Linux or Unix-based hosting account, first login to your server using SSH. We recommend Windows users download PuTTY, a free SSH client. After logging in, simply type passwd.You will be prompted to first enter your old password, then prompted to enter the new password twice.

 bash-2.04$ passwd 
Changing password for username
(current) UNIX password:
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
bash-2.04$

Remember, for security reasons your password should be at least 6 characters in length and contain both numbers and letters.
