A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may offer you more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use could make it more annoying and tough for you to handle your site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

It comes with a lot of functions and even traditional ones including copying and moving files can be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel like you’re using an application on your home PC. If you transfer entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you won't have to worry about scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a whole lot of other advanced capabilities too, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be just a mouse click away. What is more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use 3 separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a plain text editor and a code editor.
