Exactly so if you create a link from /var/www/[folder name]
you will be set.
Or, use the apache/lighttpd directive that maps home directories to the domain, IE: www.example.com/~username
Then you use SFTP to transfer files, and if desired create a jail for that user then allow SSH access for administration as well. There are many options, I just like to frown away from FTP as it seems to be a old, insecure protocol.
