Hi

I have installed Apache successfully on ubuntu 16.04 and configured for multiple domain. It works fine.
Now I want to give one user to upload via sftp for 2 domains. Restrict that user from accessing rest of the domains.

Example folder structure
/var/www/a.com
/var/www/b.com
/var/www/c.com
/var/www/d.com
/var/www/e.com

Planning to give permission for b.com, c.com domains to one user.

You can chroot jail the user to their home folder, ie /home/bob, and put public_html folder in their home folder. This prevents them from seeing anything else on the system.
