Bluehost Password Requirements

First, let's go over the password requirements. These requirements may look strict, but they'll help you create a strong password. Your new password must have:

  1. At least eight characters
  2. At least one capital letter
  3. At least one lowercase letter
  4. At least one number
  5. At least one special character
  6. A minimum strength rating of "Meh" or higher
  7. It can't be a previously-used password
  8. It can't contain the account username

What is a Special Character?

Special characters are any symbol that is not a number or letter. The following are some examples of special characters.

~ ` ! @ # $ % ^
& * ( ) _ - + =
[ ] { } | \ : ;
" ' < > , . ? /

I Don't Remember the Current Password

If you've forgotten your primary account password and are unable to log in to your Bluehost account, follow these steps to reset the password:

  1. On the Bluehost homepage, click login in the top right corner of the page.
  2. From the login screen, click Forgot Password.
  3. Enter your username, which is your full domain name, and click Next.
  4. An email containing a password reset link will be sent to your account's email address on file. Click the reset link in the email.
    • If the email is not in your inbox, wait a few minutes, check again, or look in your junk mail or spam folder. If you have still not received the email, make sure you're checking the right email address or check out how to update your email address.

I Know the Bluehost Password but Want to Change It

If you know your password and can log in to your account, follow these steps to reset the password: 

  1. Log in to your Bluehost control panel.
  2. Click the Profile icon towards the top right corner of your screen.
  3. Choose Passwords & Security from the drop-down menu that appears.
  4. Enter your old password first, then the preferred new password (you will have to enter the new password twice to verify).
  5. Click the Change your password now! button to confirm. 

Troubleshooting Bluehost Password

  • If your new password includes all of the requirements but doesn't reach at least "Meh" on the strength scale, try adding a special character.
  • Use only the special characters shown in the Password Requirements section. Don't use international characters.
  • If you're having trouble coming up with an acceptable password, click Suggest Password, and the system will create one for you.
  • If you're unable to log in with the new password, make sure you are using a valid username. You can use any domain name assigned to your account (e.g., yourdomain.com) or the username that was created when you signed up (e.g., yourdom1). An email address is not a valid username.
