    Hi,

    I would like to know if it is possible to disable specific special character when creating cPanel account?
    I want to disable "@" character. I do have an Auto Installer Script (Softaculous) which uses User Authentication via the URL itself.

    For Example:

    If my user is: billyboxer and password is: b@xer111, then the URL will look like this:
    /https://billyboxer:b@xer111@my.domain.com:2083/frontend/x3/softaculous/index.live.php

    Usually, this won't work because my password contains "@" character. The URL won't recognized the domain address and will give me this kind of error.

    Code:
    getaddrinfo(3) failed for xer111@my.domain.com:2083
    Couldn't resolve host 'xer111@my.domain.com'
    Please advise.

    Thank You.

    Hello :)

    You can enter your own custom password to ensure that character is not used. However, it's not possible to modify the randomly generated passwords.

    Thank you.
