    hello,

    I have created a package in WHM with 10 add-on domains allowed to host in single hosting account and set 1 FTP account only. As i don't wish to create multiple ftp accounts in same hosting for multiple domains.

    However, when i try to add a add-on domain, i got ftp account limitation error as the cpanel system try to create separate ftp for add-on domain.

    I have used many hosting providers who already have same functionality. Please help me how to do it.

    Thank you.

    Hello :),

    While creating addon domain DO NOT tick " Create an FTP account associated with this Addon Domain. " options so that cPanel will not create FTP account for your addon domain.

    Hello :)

    You can update the account to the Paper Lantern theme to utilize the updated "Addon Domains" interface that allows you to disable the FTP account creation:

    Addon Domains - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Theme modifications are possible via the "WHM >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account" option in Web Host Manager.

    Thank you.
