I can access a website from any network at http://www.example.com
Though, to edit the files, I have to connect to their VPN server and then connect to another server (via FTP)
How is it possible that anyone can access the website in a browser, but can only edit the files behind a VPN?
What are the advantages of having a setup like this? (as opposed to just having an sftp connection to the web servers document root)
