Some guidelines from cPanel on how to manage your password.

i) Do not use words that are in a dictionary, names, or any personal information (for example, your birthday or phone number).
ii) Avoid simple patterns. Instead, use UPPER and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols. Make certain that your password is at least eight characters long.
iii) When you choose a new password, make certain that it is not related to your previous passwords.
iv) Don’t write down your password, memorize it. In particular, don’t write it down and leave it anywhere, and don’t place it in an unencrypted file!
v) Use unrelated passwords for systems controlled by different organizations.
vi) Don’t give or share your password, in particular to someone claiming to be from computer support or a vendor unless you are sure they are who they say they are.
vii) Don’t let anyone watch you enter your password.
viii) Don’t enter your password on a computer you don’t trust.
ix) Use the password for a limited time and change it periodically.
