You can use separate FTP accounts to manage your web content in case you have a number of sites within the exact same website hosting account. You can grant different individuals access only to specific directories, for instance – web developers or IT specialists from the company, and rest assured that they will not be able to access any other files or anything else within the website hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. Also, you can create and administer several different sites at the same time using a web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage (since these applications make use of FTP to establish a connection to the server) and publish your website files both when you create them and when you edit them. An important part of accomplishing these tasks is the possibility to set up and manage your FTP accounts quickly and effortlessly.
