    I need to create a FTP user account that can log in without using the @ symbol. All the accounts I've create in Cpanlel require the @ symbol. for instance test@domain.com

    Any ideas anyone please?

    Only the root user to the account can login with username. All other addon FTP accounts need to use username@domainname.com

    Is there a specific reason why you can't use that?

    Hello,

    I just tested this on a dedicated IP. If you use these settings, you do not have to pass the @domain.com portion for the username:

    Host: dedicatedIP#
    Username: createdftpuser
    Password: passwordofuser

    Please replace dedicatedIP# with the dedicated IP, createdftpuser with the FTP user created in cPanel > FTP Accounts area, and passwordofuser with the password for that created FTP user. Only dedicated IPs will allow this to be done. You must use the dedicated IP as the Host for this connection to work.

    Thanks!
