What's an FTP Manager? How much handy is it with regards to controlling a website?
You can use different FTP accounts to administer your content in case you’ve got a number of Internet sites in one and the same website hosting account. You can grant different people access only to certain folders, for instance – web developers or IT professionals from the company, and rest assured that they will not be able to access any other files or anything else within the hosting account, as the FTP accounts have restricted access. Also, you can create and manage a number of different sites simultaneously with a web design app like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (since these applications make use of FTP to access the server) and publish the website files both when you create them and when you modify them. A vital part of doing these tasks is the ability to set up and administer your FTP accounts quickly and seamlessly.
