    Right I have some questions.

    Imagine I set up a sub-domain and give it a FTP username and password. The content of that will be uploaded where? In which folder?

    You can specify/restrict ftp access via your cpanel and ftp manager:

    *snip*
    Directions:
    If you enter a single / in the directory box, the new FTP user will have access to the entire public_html directory and all directories under it. If you just want the new user to be able to access a sub-domain, just set the directory box to the same value as the sub-domain's root name, which is listed in parenthesis on the sub-domain section of this control panel.

    Please be aware that the new user will have read/write access to the directory you choose and every directory below it. For example, if you choose to add the user john, and give the user access to /public_html/john directory, the user will be able to add, edit, rename and remove any file or directory in /public_html/john.

    Thank You.

    Is there any way I can limit the amount of space used by the subdomains? And bandwidth?

    Or does WHM do that?
