A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could offer more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use could make it more aggravating and complicated for you to handle your Internet site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

The context menus will provide you with access to lots of other sophisticated capabilities too, so things such as creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area will be merely a mouse click away. What is more, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can also use 3 different file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
