ftp log in is the same for several sites

#1 Post by paolo8808 » 2013-04-29 10:07

Ftp log in
Anybody using filezilla with hostgator hosting for his web site?
I have several web sites hosted in HG and I use filezilla to upload files to the root of my wp sites.
It looks like an ftp access for a specific web site can be used to access also another of my web sites hosted in HG using the same
ftp log ins.
Can anybody explain me why? I was having a site http://www.example.com customized by a freelancer in fiverr, he needed a ftp log in and later told me that he could just use another log in form another of my sites where he previously he did another job for me.
I dont want the same log in for all my sites, what can I do? Anybody knows more about this thing and can help me out?
Thx!
Paolo

Most probably there is only one FTP account and the sites are just in different subdirectories.
