When you are logged into your control panel you should be able to select “Users” from the menu, then select “Manage Users” and select your name and edit it from there. If you are unable to do this the person who setup your account has not given you the permission to do so and you would need to ask them to change it for you or give you higher permissions. If you need any other help don’t hesitate to ask =).

You can edit your Web ID password from here - https://panel.dreamhost.com/id/index.cgi?tab=secure - but all services (SSH/FTP/etc) would need to be changed as I talked about above.
