Subdomains and FTP access

Here's a brief description about how subdomains on the Unix server works: 

You create a subdomain in the control panel - http://sub1.domains.com This creates a directory called sub1 in your domain account ie: http://domains.com/sub1 which is 'mapped' to the subdomain address. This means your master ftp account can simply access it like any other standard directory. 

To give another user access to JUST the sub1 folder (and therefore the sub1.domains.com subdomain) You create an ftp user of the same name: (sub1) then when he/she ftp's into the account, thay can only access that directory. 

Note that if you want to actually password protect folders (so that you need password to actually view the content on the web), this this can also be easily done using the Control Panel.
