How Can I Change My Control Panel Username?  Print this Article

A username is a vital piece of your hosting account. Despite the name, whether or not it can be changed depends on the type of hosting plan you have. Please refer to your hosting type below to understand how your username can or cannot be changed.

Shared

Unfortunately, you may not change the user name associated with your control panel. Once it is set, there are vital components using that name. Some of those settings are used by your web site, and are not controlled by WebSupporters.

Reseller

You may change the user names for any accounts you create by going to WHM and clicking the Modify Account link (read more in the related article). However, you cannot change the user name you picked during sign up.

VPS and Dedicated

You may change the user names for any accounts you create by going to WHM and clicking the Modify Account link (read more in the related article). However, you cannot change the user name provided by WebSupporters; Linux is always root, and Windows is always admin.
