Change or Set Contact Information in cPanel

You must first log into your cPanel hosting control panel - if you have lost or forgotten your username and/or password, you must email support and ask for the details (lost passwords will mean a password reset).

You must have at least one email set in the contact information section in cpanel, this is to receive notices about your hosting account and other notifications (including space/bandwidth alerts). You should never use an email address of any domain you have in your hosting account, it must be a separate email, preferably the address set up with your ISP.

Once logged in, we will proceed with changing or adding your contact email in your cPanel web hosting control panel...
