Default Client wide ssh

I've been on my first vps for about a week and decided to give ispconfig a whirl...I like its simplicity more than kloxo, and it requires a lot less to function than kloxo from my experience.

My question is about setting up a CLIENT ssh or ftp user. I have CentOs with ispconfig 3 on both a local vm and my vps. For simplicity, I would like to have one user account that can manage multiple sites.
Before using ispconfig, I would mount my vm with ssh and put all the sites in that users home directory. I could simply upload multiple sites and that user owned them all. What is the best way to do this in ispconfig so i dont have to create 50 separate ssh/ftp users and mount paths?

Default

A SSH or FTP user can only access one site, not multiple sites in ISPConfig. ISPConfig uses a secure website setup where every website has its own linux system user, so when one website gets hacked on a server, the other sites are not affected by that.
