A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could offer you more complex features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage the site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager that comes with our shared hosting plans will make controlling your information as basic as handling files on your personal computer or laptop. You will be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not only in the account, but also directly from your PC, so you will no longer need an FTP client to upload information. Also, the folder structure will be kept, so files from separate folders will not get mixed. You can also use right-click context menus and access different functions. You will be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and more. If you want to change files, you could do that using 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.
