In my experience working at hosting companies, each user would get their own
account on the server.  These accounts are set up to allow for FTP and
telnet access.  This allows the users to manage the site as they see fit
without having to deal with any administrators (usually).  Of course, you
need to set up the correct security around this type of access, but that's
not too terribly difficult in an *nix environment.

I don't know a thing about Windows, so someone else will have to help you

Again, I'm not a windows guy.

Take a look at the docs for mod_userdir...

I've never done this on Windows, but I can't imagine it is too terribly
