I read a solution to this but it doesnt work. I tried going to gateway.godaddy.com>settings>reset and used chrome browser. All that i got was a new random username. I tried reset 2 times, once saying yes and ones no to choosing a wordpress username/password. When i choose Yes, it asks for username and password, but that username is only for wordpress. Cpanel userid is still a randomly generated string. Please help..

Pathetic Hosting service provider. Big mistake to choose godaddy. We will not have any control on anything, we have to use how they want us to. Worst company. Planning to cancel my account from this horrible hosting provider.
In cPanel, you cannot change FTP accounts' login/user names or their paths. However, you can remove an FTP account, and then create a new one. You can also update the password. For full control and access I suggest looking into a VPS or Dedicated Server.
