    The primary account does not need it.

    You should be able to use a # instead of an @.

    Oh yeah, tell them to use a real ftp client ;)

    If you are using browser, you need to use @ in between.Otherwise you should use ftp clients.

    eth00 nailed this one the best ....

    If the client uses the master FTP account instead of an "addon" domain FTP account,
    then they can login with just the plain login name without any "@" or "#" or "+" and
    they don't have to specify the domain name as part of the login name either.

    Solved

    Hi

    I had this problem today. This was caused because I added another website to my dedicated server. If you only have 1 website running, however, you can connect to the ftp accoutn withut the need for @domain.com at the end of your username.

    This also works for any subdomains or addon domain you have under 1 account.

    Cheers

    If the account has a dedicated IP address, it is not necessary to use the @domain.tld format. For domains on shared IP addresses, the @domain.tld or #domain.tld format is necessary. This is because the FTP service needs the domain portion to know which file in /etc/proftpd to look at for the usernames and passwords. The main account, the cPanel user, can always log in without the domain, whether the account has a shared or dedicated IP address.

    Since this thread is over a year old, I am now closing it.
