Brute Force Protection

I get the following error in cPanel

"This account is currently locked out because a brute force attempt was detected. Please wait 10 minutes and try again. Attempting to login again will only increase this delay. If you frequently experience this problem, we recommend having your username changed to something less generic."


If you are getting this error frequently please contact our support department to get your usename changed.
