A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more irritating and tough for you to control your Internet site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our shared web hosting
packages shall make handling your data as basic as managing files on your desktop computer or notebook. You shall be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only inside the account, but also directly from your PC, so you will no longer need an FTP client to upload content. Furthermore, the folder structure shall be preserved, so files from separate folders shall not get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access various features. You'll be able to set up and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and more. If you want to modify files, you can easily do that via a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you may opt for the one which you need and feel most comfortable working with.
