FTP Settings for Subdomains
« on: November 14, 2004, 11:54:42 AM »
You've just created a new subdomain in your cPanel.  You've created an FTP user and password combination, now you need to connect.  

Host: ftp.yourdomain.com
User: user@yourdomain.com
Pass: the password your created with your username
Directory: /


The 'yourdomain.com' referred to above will be your account's primary domain.

** These settings are for use with an FTP program and are not for FTP via browser

FTP Settings for Subdomains

Hi,

Actually, you do not need to use ftp. at the beginning of any host name/address for any FTP program I have used.  You can simply use domain.com and in the instance of subdomains (to make it easiest for people), you can use the following step-by-step directions for their creation and the FTP account creation:

1. Create the subdomain in the Subdomains area in cPanel.  In my example, it is happy on my primary domain account stoneofendar.com which makes the subdomain happy.stoneofendar.com

2. Go into the FTP Manager, FTP accounts, and enter the following:
Login: happy (the same name as the subdomain folder)
Password: ****** (whatever you want here)
Directory:    /home/daniel4/public_html This automatically fills in based on what you enter in Login area

3. Click "Create" button and now you will see:
When logging into the ftp server please use the username exactly as it appears below. If the username includes a "@", make sure to include it when logging in. Example: Use "john@doe.org" and not "john".
happy@stoneofendar.com (/happy)

This means that you must use happy@stoneofendar.com (subdomain_folder@domain.com) for the user in your FTP client for it to function.

In your FTP client, you can now enter the following:
Host Name/Address: happy.stoneofendar.com (so subdomain.primary.com will work here)
User: happy@stoneofendar.com (so subdomain_folder@primary.com)
Password: password used with FTP account creation

A similar configuration would be used for addon domains, but the password used would be that during the addon domain creation and the FTP account will be automatically created at the time of the addon domain creation itself.  The settings for an addon would be (assuming the addon is called happystone.com on my stoneofendar account with folder happystone):

Host Name/Address: happystone.com (so addon.com will work here)
User: happystone@stoneofendar.com (so addon_folder@primary.com)
Password: password used with addon domain creation

I hope this helps.

Michelle, what FTP program are you using?  WS_FTPLE, CuteFTP, SmartFTP and FileZilla (a freeware, awesome FTP client) which are the major FTP clients all work without ftp. at the beginning.

FileZilla is great because it has a lot of options like viewing owner/group permissions so you can ensure stuff is chowned properly (you can't see that in cPanel).  You can get it at http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/

Thanks.

Thanks that is great for FTP programs but do you or anyone else know ho to conect with Windows explorer to a subdomain. I have done it once but can't remember how.

I am new to all this stuff and am getting very confused with the subdomain stuff. I will have some more questions later when I have time to think a bit more than I can right noow.

Many thank in anticipation

ftp://theirftpaccountname%40domain.com:theirpassword@ftp.domain.com/ is the line you can type into the browser.  The %40 means '@' but you can't put an @ there or the line is parsed wrong.

After connecting with IE you should be able to just drag and drop files.   Mozilla Firefox doesn't seem to support that - or at least it hasn't done so for me, maybe I have it set up wrong.

It would actually have been helpful if the FTP manager in Cpanel would have give a connection hint after setting up the account as to what to tell the new ftp user about how to enter his login details.   It took me ages (until finally finding this thread) to work out that I needed the @simlogical.com as well as the username chosen.
