    Is there a way to change the directory name WHM assigns to new cPanel accounts? Right now, the directories are named by the first eight letters in the domain name. Could I change that somehow?

    Hello :)

    Are you referring to the username of the account? For example:

    # /home/username

    If so, you can modify that when you create the account, or after the fact via:

    "WHM >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account"

    Thank you.
