you need to disable the anonymous service and use virtual host for connections example
check the GLOBAL options too at the end of the paste text

#</Anonymous>
<VirtualHost domain.net.uy>
Port 21
ServerAdmin             pablo@domain.net
ServerName "domain- Uruguay  "
TransferLog             /var/log/ftp.domain
MaxLoginAttempts        3
RequireValidShell       yes
DefaultRoot /home/ftpdocs/
User                    domftp
Group                   domftp
AllowOverwrite          yes
LoginPasswordPrompt     off "Wibble"
</VirtualHost>
<Global>
DefaultChdir /home/ftpdocs/
DefaultRoot ~
HiddenStor off
ShowSymlinks on
ShowDotFiles off
</Global>
