A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could provide you with more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use may make it more aggravating and difficult for you to manage the site content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

If you transfer entire folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you will not have to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to lots of other advanced functions as well, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be simply a mouse click away. Furthermore, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, due to the fact that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use three separate file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
