Password Complexity

This page allows a virtual server administrator to set the policies for users' password complexity.

You may require your users' password to be at least of a certain length, and to include certain types of characters.


Anything that is not required is still permitted, therefore in the example here below:

Passwords must be at least 8 characters long

Passwords must contain at least 1 uppercase letter

Passwords must contain at least 1 number

Password can contain also letters and special characters


So, with the rules set in the example here below:

9LittleIndians@ would be an acceptable password (length>8, one number, two uppercase letters)

9&little%indians would not be acceptable (missing a required uppercase letter)
