    Can anyone tell me what is allowed in a cPanel username, so far I know the following:

    1. must be between 6-8 characters
    2. can not start with a number
    3. some usernames are excluded such as root, nobody etc..

    Is there a definitive list of what is (or is not) allowed in a username? Could one of the cPanel staff provide this. I would be happy with a list or a regular expression, maybe the regular expression form the cpanel could could be pasted here?
