    One thing i noticed when adding new accounts is that a mysql database with their username is created. What is it for? it's always empty....and remains that way....

    Can we use this as the default DB for the user instead of having them create one when they need to?

    Thanks for any insight. :)

    Actually it creates a username and not a database ....

    Technically, you could use the default user created but it is not a good idea
    because if you should go and change your FTP password later then
    all your web scripts will start failing because the MySQL password will
    change at the same time.

    If you create your own databases and database users then any password
    changes to your Cpanel or FTP won't effect your MySQL databases.
