[continuation from the old modified post] …the data you store on the database may not be modified by anyone but you. This is a shared hosting; the credentials are not the same as other accounts, but the hackers can’t access your Control Panel because that may violate the Terms of Service. However, I would recommend, if the password is stored as a plain text, to encrypt it with the MD5 hash method to make sure hackers cannot steal them, and for your students to have passwords that have:

  • at least a caps letter;
  • at least a non-caps letter;
  • at least a number;
  • at least a symbol;
  • doesn’t have any of the students’ names.
