If you have a hosting service at MrDomain you can create differents FTP users..

The benefit of creating different FTP users is that you can give these users permissions to manage specific folders. This user will only be able to manage files and folders within the directory assigned, and he will not be able to edit files or folder out of its directory tree.

In addition to assigning an specific directory, you can limit the storage space of new FTP users. In this way, each of them can only upload the files without exceeding his quota.

The sum of these quotas that you assign to FTP users cannot exceed the total storage capacity of the hosting. For example, in the Basic plan you have 1GB of capacity. In this case if you create a new user limited to 512MB, the second user can have a maxium of 512MB as quota, since the maximum capacity of the hosting plan is 1GB (1024MB)
