A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could offer more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more aggravating and hard for you to control your website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

The feature-rich File Manager included with our website hosting solutions will make managing your content as easy as controlling files on your personal computer or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only inside the account, but also directly from your laptop or computer, so you'll no longer require an FTP client to upload information.
