    Hi there,

    I've just upgraded my name.com account so now I can have multiple domains. I registered a new one and pointed it to the same IP as my main domain. DNS is set-up and it works fine. New site points to default apache template. But how on earth do I access my new websites files via FTP? It keeps on bringing me back to my main domain's stuff.

    Sorry for posting this here but can't really wait out the weekend for them to answer my ticket.


    Help very much appreciated +rep, ty

    There must me a control panel to setup your FTP account.
    If you already have setup, you will need an FTP Tool to access the website root.

    I can create / edit the FTP accounts but it will always have .maindomain.com as a default extension.
    I can only access my account root as it's shared hosting.

    Sending newdomain.com traffic to a submap using .htaccess doesn't work either.

    Just connect with an ftp tool to that domain. ( i never use ftp tool, so cant suggest you exact steps)
    But the ftp tool needs 3 things
    1. server address
    2. FTP id and
    3. FTP password

    Edit : server address might work in 1st step

    search in google : connect ftp cpanel
    the first video may help you.

    go to Public_http ...if you have installed wordpress on the domain from your cpanel than there will be an folder for your website
    else make a new FTP account in your domain like yoursite.com ....

    Well yes but ftp.newdomain.com sends me to the same stuff as ftp.olddomain.com
    Creating a new FTP user is possible but has a default extension of .olddomain.com

    there will be an option in your Cpanel to add a new domain....after you add it... got to
    ftp.olddomain.com

    public_http ------ and your new domain folder

    Ok thanks bro. I tried the "Addon Domains" button earlier and it said that the domain was not valid. Tried it again after you said this and it finally works.
    Thanks a lot +rep.
