Difference between resetting password and recovering password. Steps for each below.

Resetting Password

Resetting your password means you already have the existing password. In this case you would just need to login to the billing control panel with the existing password and update the password from the client area.

See the below steps for guidance on resetting your password.

Recovering Password

Recovering your password means you do NOT know what the existing password is and you are trying to regain access to your account. This process would require having access to the e-mail address on file for the account.

See the below steps for guidance on recovering your password.
