Learn more about the capabilities of a File Manager within a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use could make it more annoying and challenging for you to handle the site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.

plans will make controlling your web content as simple as managing files on your personal computer or notebook. You shall be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not just within the account, but also directly from your personal computer, so you will no longer need an FTP client to upload data.
