Follow these steps: Login to your control panel Under the FTP Tab (near bottom right section) Click "FTP Accounts" Click "Add Account" For the login field, enter any name you want Enter a password Click "Create" The login name will become the created directory. If you entered "james", a directory called "james" will be created under your "www/public_html" directory. If you already have a directory called "james" then a new directory will not be created. To login to your FTP account use the following settings in your FTP software. hostname: yourdomain.com or your IP address login: username@yourdomain.com (james@yourdomain.com) password: enter_your_password Users will only have access to the directory you created. If you created a login name called "james". Then once logged in, james can only access the "james" directory and anything below that, e.g. yourdomain.com/joe/test/. Joe will not be able to access any directory higher than his directory.
