I would like to give someone permissions to access only their subdomain. It seems like this can be done through ftp manager (correct me if I'm wrong). I don't seem to have access to ftp manager from cpanel. Is there any other way to do it? Or, any way to get access to ftp manager?

Any suggestions?

Hello Imr,

You have access to the FTP manager via the cpanel. It is located in the Files category. I have an article here on how to create an FTP account there.

Simply set the account to the correct root folder and that will limit them to that folder and any files and subfolders under it. They will not have access to anything higher.

Best Regards,
Scott M
