    As far as i know you can ftp to any IP or domain on the server, use the cpanel account's user and pass and get in, but when I looked over at Main >> Resellers >> Reseller Center >> Manage reseller's main/shared IP I saw:

    Important: Customers must FTP to ftp.theirdomain.com for FTP to work correctly. They cannot FTP to theirdomain.com if you change their main shared ip. (Note: theirdomain.com should be replaced with the user's actual domain.)


    Is that the case? If so then why?

    Well, I don't see it will make any difference as ftp.theirdomain.com and theirdomain.com are resolving to the IPs on the same server. You just need to make sure you use ftpuser@domain.com as the ftp user.
