Updating your contact information and privacy settings

  1. Log in to your DreamHost panel at https://panel.dreamhost.com.
  2. Navigate to the (Panel > 'HOME' > 'Get Started') page.

    Changing your primary email address will change which email address can be used to log in to the DreamHost panel. Before changing your primary email address, make absolutely sure that the email address is entered accurately to prevent panel login issues.
