A File Manager software tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use could make it more frustrating and difficult for you to manage your site content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our shared hosting
plans will make handling your web content as basic as handling files on your personal computer or notebook. You shall be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not just inside the account, but also straight from your PC, so you shall no longer require an FTP client to upload data. What's more, the folder structure will be kept, so files from different folders shall not get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You'll be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and more. If you'd like to modify files, you could do that via a number of different 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 at ease working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced, albeit user-friendly File Manager offers you total control over your content and you'll not have any difficulties handling the folders and files that you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even when you have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is providing are only several mouse clicks away, even the more advanced ones such as creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your desktop computer. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both inside the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you could upload content directly, which eliminates the need for an FTP client.
