Hello username,

With the exception of your main cPanel account, which is similar to 'userna5', all FTP accounts will have the primary domain name at the end.

There is one solution, however. You would need to obtain a shorter domain name and then make it the primary domain name on your account via a Primary Domain Name change. Then all FTP accounts would use the shorter domain name on the end.

Best Regards,
Scott M
