    I have a customer that is trying to access a FTP account VIA Internet Explorer with a link as follows.

    ftp://username@domain.com:password@ftp.domain.com

    IE is confusing the link because of the @ in the FTP user name.

    i am using PURE-FTPd and was wondering if anyone knew how to remove the @domain.com in the user name when creating a user with cpanel.

    i would like the login to look like

    ftp://username:password@ftp.domain.com

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There have been many threads about this already. To sum it up:

    1. Have the customer use a FTP client, not a web browser with minimal FTP capabilities, when doing FTP. This will avoid this particular issue.

    2. No, you cannot create a secondary FTP account that does not have @domain.com in its username.

    Use + instead @

    ftp://username+domain.com:password@ftp.domain.com
