    Why does the main FTP account for one of my domains require the @domain.com after the username (of the account) for the username. I noticed some other domains on the same server work with just the username. The server is running on 11.23 Stable and Proftpd.

    FTP normally requires username@domain.com. Even on my server if I just enter the username without the domain it never works. If I use a proper FTP username (user@domain.com) it always works perfectly.

    Are you using the same FTP client each time or have you observed different results with different FTP clients?

    FTP only requires username@domain.com if they are subaccounts. I've used just the username for the Main account for as long as I can remember. This is also stated in the FTP configuration in cPanel. I haven't changed my FTP client ever since.

    Well, I changed the username to something else then back to the original and now I am able to login with just the username for the main account.
