Bluehost Web Hosting Help
This article explains the different password types for your Bluehost account.
The main password allows unrestricted access to the account. When used with the main username it can access the cPanel and billing functions. It can also be used to access other services tied to your account like FTP or SSH.
The Hosting password would be used if you wanted to give a developer or designer access to work on the website but not to your billing information. The Hosting password will be allowed access to the cPanel. It won't be able to access the billing profile. The cPanel password can add items to the shopping cart but cannot process any orders.
The Billing password would be used by someone responsible for finances but should not have access to the website itself. With the billing password a user can login and access billing related functions but will not have access to the cPanel.
To set Main, Hosting or Billing passwords you need to login with the main password. Then go to account and click on the password icon.
- Login to your bluehost account with the main password.
- Click the Account link at the top.
- Click the password link near the top of the account page.
- Use the forms on the page to set the password of your choice.
