What's an FTP Manager? How much useful is it with regard to handling an Internet site?
You can use separate FTP accounts to administer your content if you’ve got a number of websites within one and the same website hosting account. You can give different persons access only to specific directories, for example – web developers or IT specialists from the company, and be sure that they won’t be able to access any other files or anything else in the website hosting account, as the FTP accounts have limited access. Plus, you can set up and manage a number of different Internet sites at once using a website building application like FrontPage or Dreamweaver (since these apps make use of FTP to establish a connection to the server) and upload your website files both when you create them and when you edit them. A crucial part of doing these tasks is the ability to create and administer your FTP accounts swiftly and seamlessly.
