    I found this thread Files & Folders Permissions and after reading the replies I've decided to post here.

    I have a GoDaddy VPS. I have root WHM access. As root, I create a new account. I then connect via FTP and create a new folder within the public_html folder. That folder's default permissions are 775, not 755.

    What can I do to ensure that public_html folders are created with 755 permissions for all of my current and future accounts?

    Bingo. I was connecting via SFTP. I've changed the connection protocol to FTP and now all new folders that I create have permissions of 755.

    Thank you!
