    no, what you are describing can not be done via cpanel standard,
    that would take some custom api commands - unless someone else has a better solution....:>

    No, this is not possible to do from CPanel. You can create mulitple FTP accounts manually for your website users from CPanel.

    The way that cPanel works in relation to the server is as follows:

    cPanel will be installed on a web hosting server. When you sign up for a domain/website at a webhost they will provide you with access to cPanel through your web browser.

    From there, you can create FTP accounts within cPanel that allow you other other people to add/remove/update files on your website by connecting with a FTP program such as FileZilla, WS_FTP, Cyberduck, etc.

    Does that cover what you need to know?

    If you do not have your own server, you can purchase a reseller account from a company that is already using cPanel/WHM. With that reseller account, you can sell hosting packages with FTP, DB, Email etc.

    You can find companies that offer reseller accounts by performing an internet search for: cPanel Reseller Plan
