I'm receiving a Brute Force error



If you are receiving a brute force error when trying to log into your cPanel account there are usually 2 reasons:

1. You have incorrectly entered your cPanel login information too many times.

2. Someone is trying to log into your cPanel account by "brute force" (entering a large number of passwords in the hopes of guessing the correct one).

If you are receiving a brute force error, please contact support by opening a support ticket from the client area, so we can unlock your cPanel account.
