A File Manager software tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use could make it more irritating and tough for you to handle your site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

If you transfer whole folders, their structure shall be kept unchanged, so you shall not need to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a whole lot of other advanced functions also, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a click away. Also, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You could also use 3 separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
