Find out what an FTP Manager is and why it’s helpful to get one when developing a site.
You can use multiple FTP accounts to manage your content in case you’ve got a number of sites within the very same web hosting account. You can give different persons access only to certain folders, for example – web developers or IT specialists from the company, and be certain that they won’t be able to access any other files or anything else in the web hosting account, since the FTP accounts have restricted access. Moreover, you can create and manage a number of different websites at the same time with a web design application such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage (since these apps use FTP to access the web server) and upload your site files both when you create them and when you update them. A vital part of doing these tasks is the ability to create and administer your FTP accounts swiftly and easily.

The tool offers a number of different options, besides the possibility to create or remove FTP accounts. You’ll be able to check the access path for each account and by clicking it, you can change it so that the account will access another directory. Auto-configuration files can be downloaded as well, so you will not need to set up anything manually – you can just download the particular file for CyberDuck, Core FTP or FileZilla and run it on your personal computer. To make the management itself easier, the FTP Manager will allow you to see all the accounts that you’ve created in alphabetical order, on the basis of either the access path or the username.
