Hi Niashair,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. Your cPanel username cannot be changed once it has been created. The cPanel username is created by the system itself and based on the primary domain.

If by chance you have a vps or dedicated server, you do have the ability to change cPanel usernames for accounts that you've created (although you cannot change your own cPanel username). You can use the modify a cPanel account feature in WHM to change cPanel usernames.

If there's an error in the domain name, we can possibly fix that depending on the circumstances, however, the cPanel username will remain the same.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
