i have a customer who wishes to add many ftp accounts and allow them to upload securely. i installed an ssl certificate for him if this helps. i understand that sftp is only good for the main account, not the added ftp accounts so my question is how can he upload securely using many ftp accounts he will assign to his clients?

thanks very much

While SFTP (file transfer via SSH) requires shell access, FTPS (FTP using SSL/TLS) does not. cPanel/WHM supports FTPS on all FTP accounts by default. However, you may want to ask the client if FTPS would be sufficiently secure, as the answer can vary depending on their precise needs.
