    I've tried adding a couple of new FTP usernames and passwords and I'm wondering why Cpanel causes the usernames to be like an email address instead of just a one word name?

    thanks ahead of time!

    Go on, have a guess
    It does this to allow for virtual web hosting. This way, if two different customers want to FTP in as "bob", they can with bob@theirrespectivedomain.com. Otherwise, only one user could have an FTP account called "bob" and the other would be out of luck.
