cPanel Access Level
Root Administrator
in order to use the FTP account , you first need to create the cpanel account ( the website account ). To create the account , login to WHM with root , click on Create A new account >> provide the website details such as domain name , username etc. and other details >> at the bottom , click on create and the account will be created. Afer creating the account it will show a screen where you will see a cpanel username and password which can be used as a FTP username and password to upload the data for that particular website for which you just created account in WHM.

Cpanel is to administrate websites where as WHM is to administrate server.
