If you have ever created a password especially for your CPanel, you may have found the difficulty that one has in creating a secure password. Today, I am going to share with you a simple way that you can use to create a CPanel password that a hacker will not be able to guess and more importantly, you will never forget it. This particular method is illustrated on the comic strip below. Have a look at it and I will explain.
HOW NOT TO CREATE A CPANEL PASSWORD
In the first case, When you chose to create a one-word password that has both numbers and symbols, It will normally be normally secure, However, it would take 3 days for a machine to guess it if it was guessing at 1000 times a second. When a machine tries to guess passwords one at a time, techies call it a Brute Force Attack. The challenge with this kind of password is that you can barely remember it. In fact, most likely thing is that you will have to reset it after a while because you have forgotten it.
THE BEST WAY TO CREATE A CPANEL PASSWORD
Now the way we are recommending is one that will make your passwords more secure and easy to remember. Choose a bunch of random words, as shown above. Next, create a story in your mind that is in pictures that will make the words make sense in your brain. In the example above, the story line is where you are telling the horse, “Correct, that that is a battery staple”. You will most likely get forced to add a symbol to your password: add a question mark to your storyline. Consider capitalizing the first word to ramp up the security of the password.
