Hosting provider M6.net explained me that the password security of its control panel (Plesk) is limited to a maximum of 14 characters. This article on Parallels explaining backs him up. However, he claims that this restriction applies to any password set through Plesk, including DB passwords. Is this correct?
In a world of ever increasing online threads, I tend to simply back away, not trusting the system that doesn't allow or enforce strong passwords. I find it very odd that a reputable company like Parallels limit security this way.
Should I change my vision? More importantly, what control panels, if any (cpanel?) allow arbitrary length passwords without restrictions on the characters?
(Note: this is a bit of a follow up to this more general question)
