Right now I have a pretty basic username for my cpanel account and it's easy to guess for hackers..

So I am wondering: If I change "simplename" to "super456hardZ485to00Aguess"

...will anything break? I realize I would need to edit the paths in scripts that require "/public_html/simplename/".

As far as I know it can be only 8 characters long. Also if you change the username, the path will change automatically.

But, there is no need to change the username (because it might be shown on PHP pages, if an error occurs or you don't turn off error_reporting). You can make a harder guess password!

Hope it helps!
