    Hi all,
    I have clients I do design work for and also host.

    I do not want the clients to have access to either FTP or backup so they can not copy any files off the server.

    I want to give them access to cpanel so they can do everything else, but if I do, then they automatically get ftp access as well.

    Is there any way to go around this?

    Thanks

    If you give access to cpanel for your customers they will have all futures provided by cpanel, ftp accounts creation included :(

    you could disable the ftp by setting the Max Ftp Accounts on account creation to 0 and also even modifying your dns template to not include an ftp entry, and blocking ports used by ftp with a firewall. ... of course, don't forget to disable the cpanel's file manager in the package features too, and without saying, SSH and Telnet (yikes)!

    well there you go!
