What's an FTP Manager? How much useful is it with regards to running a web site?
The easiest way to give a third-party access to the web files in a given directory is to set up an FTP account and to set website content access limits with regard to your hosting space. If you use the services of a web designer, for example, they won’t get access to any other content or any private info within your account. You can also use multiple FTP accounts to manage a number of sites built with a desktop web design application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver – each site can be published online and subsequently edited using an FTP account with access to its own site folder on the hosting server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to create and administer your FTP accounts effortlessly.
