    When I hire a freelancer to do web design work for me I usually just give my FTP details out which I think some people may say is a stupid idea. I read on another post that I can create an account for the freelancer? My host is dreamhost if that matters. If anyone can help me out and explain what this means and how I create the account for the freelancer, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
