Hello Tina, 


Thank you for your question regarding user name changes. Depending on what username you are attempting to change, this process will differ. If you are looking to change the cPanel username on your account, unfortunately it is not possible to do so at this time. If you are looking to change the username on your WordPress site, pleas see the following guide for instructions:
