    If you're creating an addon domain as it sounds like you are, there is no real need to touch the username at all. You'll still be logging into the main account with your regular username. You might want to remove what you've added and try again. This time, type in the full domain name. Let the next two sections autofill, and add your addon account password.

    It looks by your post you made some changes to the default settings thats making the path to the addon site not work right.

    Do you already have a subdomain called ftbuddy.ftbuddy.com on the account? If so, you will need to select a different subdomain name or remove the already existing subdomain in cPanel > Subdomains area. Any time you create an addon domain on a cPanel machine, it also creates a subdomain entry on the main domain.
