    I have a client that wants to transfer their accounts over to my servers. However, they're currently on an Hsphere box where the ftp is setup to where he logs into one ftp account and has access to all ftp websites from that one account.

    For instance, when you login to his hsphere ftp account with the one username and password there is a list of about 50 websites listed as folders ie., etc. When you click on any of them, then it opens up their web directory to where you upload the web files.

    Is this possible to setup the same structure on a whm/cpanel box? If not, does anyone know what would be the closest most efficient and simplest way to reproduce this setup in cpanel/whm?

    The easiest way to do this in a cPanel environment is to set that user up on the X3 theme and when they create an Add-On domain, set the path to something like ~/ etc.

    However, this method sacrifices the ability to have individual cPanel accounts for each domain. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but some users do prefer different cPanel accounts for different domains.
