read-only FTP-users (even on Linux)
Today, it is only possible to give write restriction by using .ftpaccess-files. It would be very nice if there was a switch in the panel when creating FTP users, which would make it possible to create a read-only account.
Thank you for your input. We will consider the possibility of implementing this feature in upcoming releases.

There must be a separate user for FTP access and should not be same as owner. By default website user should not have write access to the directory. A shell was uploaded in my website and when i browsed it, it showed me everything writable and executable.
