Let's assume I have a primary domain of and an add-on domain of iWeb asks for Site Name, Server Address, User Name, Password, Directory/Path, and URL. For the primary domain I've used "abc", "", "singfr5", my password, and "public_html". The ftp upload works great.

For my add-on domain,, I used "xyz", "", "xyz", my password, and "public_html" -- where my password is the same for both domains "xyz" was the Subdomain/FTP Username I used when I created the add-on domain. When I test the connection, it errors out with a message telling me that I've used an incorrect password.
