Updating Your Account Profile

Looking for a specific section?

You can easily update your account profile and communication preferences in your Liquid Web account. Just log into your Liquid Web account and navigate to the Account section and click on the Profile tab.

Account Preferences

The first section is your account Preferences, here you control how you authenticate your account, view your server zone and can control how and when Liquid Web communicates information regarding promotions and news.

Edit Your Support Passphrase

Liquid Web requires anyone contacting us to authenticate their account in order to receive any nonpublic information about a website, server or account. To authenticate, you will need to provide your Support Passphrase any time you call for support or contact us via LiveChat outside of your Liquid Web account.

A generic passphrase is generated when you open an account with Liquid Web. For security purposes, we ask that you change the phrase to one that is unique to you. This will help you remember the passphrase and keep your account secure.
  1. At the top of the Profile section, you will find the Support Passphrase for your account.
  2. Click on the Edit button to change this phrase to something easy for you to remember.
  3. You can either click Save after you update your Passphrase or continue to update additional preferences in this section.

Your Default Zone

The Default Zone for your server is based off of your location, if you wish to have your server moved to a different zone, you will need to re-image or migrate your server to the new location. Please contact our Heroic Support for assistance.
