Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Like the subject mentions, I'm looking for a free FTP Alternative that's web based. What I need is the ability to grant people like our marketing team the ability to upload marketing images and instantly have those images show up in ourdomain.com/images/newimage.jpg. I have found plenty of excellent file sharing programs that are essentially drop box and sharepoint alternatives but have yet to find an FTP Alternative. Also ideally multiple account authentication would be great.

If anyone is familiar with cPanel I'm essentially looking for their File Manager or something very similar to it (obviously stand alone and preferably free).

Does anybody know if anything like this exists?

My suggestion is to be very careful with free web based FTP clients. You are going to be giving your FTP login details to someone...somewhere...are you comfortable doing that? I wouldn't be. For example, I just found this net2ftp.com - it doesn't even use SSL!!! Crazy –  Steve Sep 25 '12 at 4:45
