Right now, in the cpanel hostgator offers me.

Any addon domains will be default to put in the public_html folder. And at the same time, an ftp account will be created no matter if i want it or not.

I read from this forum that new version of cpanel will solve this problem. first, addon will not be default to be put in the public_html, and second, no new ftp account will be required when create an addon domain.

Am I right about these two changes? When it will happen in which version?

For now, I am still on cpanel 10 hostgator offers. My questions will be

1) Should I set up the addon domain outside public_html now even it is default to be put in the public_html on cpanel 10?

2) Could I delete the ftp account auto created for me when I add the addon domain? Just create my own ftp account to manage the addon domains?

So even on the old version of cpanel, my practice would be close to the new version of cpanel on these two issues?

You can create a new FTP account from your Cpanel's FTP manager and specify the name of your addon domain in Directory field.
