Use this interface to store contact information for your cPanel account and to set your contact preferences.
You will only see this interface if your hosting provider enables the related features.
The settings that you see in this interface may vary, depending on the setup your hosting provider chooses for you.
Change your contact information
To change your contact information, perform the following steps:
Enter the desired contact information in the available text boxes.
- We strongly recommend that you do not use an email address that your cPanel account owns. You may fail to receive messages when the server encounters problems. For example, if your mailbox exceeds its quota, you will not receive any new email, including notices.
- To reset your password, you must set your contact email address.
- For more information about Pushbullet™ access tokens, visit the Pushbullet website.
Select your desired notification settings in the Contact Preferences section.
Select your desired AutoSSL notifications setting in the AutoSSL Notifications section.
These settings only appear if your hosting provider enables them.
You can select the following settings in the Contact Preferences section of the interface:
My contact email address changes. — Send a notification to your current and previous contact email address when someone changes your contact address.
My preference for contact email address change notifications is disabled. — Send a notification when someone disables the My contact email address changes setting.
My account approaches its disk quota. — Send a notification if your website will soon reach the maximum amount of disk space.Note:
- If your website reaches its maximum amount of disk space, you cannot modify existing files or add new files to your website.
- To resolve this issue, delete old or unused files, or upgrade your hosting plan.
My account approaches its bandwidth usage limit. — Send a notification if your website will soon exceed the maximum amount of traffic.Note:
- This setting only appears if your hosting provider limits the bandwidth usage for your cPanel account and enables bandwidth notifications.
- After you reach your maximum bandwidth, visitors cannot access your website.
- To resolve this issue, you must upgrade your hosting plan. Otherwise, you must wait until the limit resets. Generally, this limit resets at the end of each month.

- To resolve this issue, change your account password to a more secure password.
- The system only sends a single notice in each 24-hour window for a specific username, service, and IP address combination.
