    You can add additional users for FTP access, if that is what you are meaning.

    Scenario: You hired a web developer to develop your website (yourdomain.com). But you do not want them to have access to your Cpanel interface. You just want them to be able to publish the website. You want to give them the login of 'devel' and password of '12345'

    1. Log into your /cpanel interface
    2. Click on FTP Accounts
    3. Under Add An FTP Account:
    Login: devel
    Password: 12345
    Directory: /public_html
    4. Save that

    Now FTP into your website using the following:
    - login: devel@yourdomain.com
    - pass: 12345

    You'll automatically be put into the public_html directory when logging in as devel@yourdomain.com.

    At this time, that is not possible. However, there is a feature request about this at:

    Adding FTP User Accounts

    Additionally, you might need to restart your FTP service after adding the user...I had to. I did this via WHM
