This is not really a Windows thing.
It depends on what FTP server do you use and its configuration.
Apparently, your FTP server is being configured to show everything by default.
Try to find some documentation (specifically configuration part) on the web for your type of FTP.
You'll definitely find it there.

If you are using MSFTP then follow following steps :

1)  simply create a FTP site under IIS >> FTP server and assign particular folder to this user/ftp site.
2) Create same ftp user a/c/site name under computer management tools.
3) Assing particular folder to this FTP a/c.
