Hello
I am looking to give access to my directory for a seperate website I have on my infinity account hosting package. I bought a domain for a seperate website, in which is being created by a family member. I was wondering how I allow her access to upload the files to website? do I create a FTP account under that?

when you add the domain as an addon domain (which sounds like the proper way to add it for your scenario), cPanel will automatically create an ftp account for the domain, pointed to that folder.

Typically it would look like: domainname@maindomian.com, so if you are adding the domain familymember.com and your main domain is mydomain.com it would be: familymember@mydomain.com for login username on that ftp account, together with the password you set during the process of adding the domain.

since you have a premium account, you might be better of to ask for support regarding connectivity on that ftp account through there. what are you using as host for that ftp account?

There can only be one main domain.
