Why would I need additional FTP users?

There are several reasons why you might consider creating an additional FTP user on your Linux shared hosting account:

        - To create an administrator or webmaster account for your Web site.
        - To provide access to a subdomain on your hosting account.
        - To allow others to set up Web sites using your hosting account.

For example, you may have a friend who needs to post their resume online. Using this feature, you can easily create an FTP user account for them and set up a directory on your Web site that they can access and upload files to. This new FTP user would only have access to their personal directory, not all of the files on your hosting account.
