Rackspace is working to make your multicloud experience as simple as possible, and you’ve told us that the best way to do this is to unify the way that you access and manage your accounts. We’re working to make account management seamless by unifying our login experience. This process will involve multiple updates over the coming months as we build towards a single solution. The first step in this journey was to ensure that your username meets the Rackspace uniqueness requirements by September 24, 2018. The next step on this journey is unifying our login portals which simplifies the login process for users starting on October 18, 2018.

Over the past several months, many of our customers were notified that they would need to update their usernames by September 24, 2018 in order to meet the uniqueness requirements. If your username required updating and you did not update it by September 24, 2018, Rackspace has automatically updated your username to meet the new requirements.

Changes to your MyRackspace username as of September 24, 2018

Your updated username is in the following format:

Current username + last 4 digits of your account number

The following example illustrates how Rackspace has created new usernames:

Previous username Account number New username

To login into your Managed Hosting portal, users should just enter their username and password.
