What exactly is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can provide more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more irritating and hard for you to control the website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager included with our shared hosting plans shall make managing your content as easy as handling files on your personal computer or notebook. You shall be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only inside the account, but also directly from your personal computer, so you'll no longer need an FTP client to upload data. Furthermore, the folder structure shall be maintained, so files from different folders won't get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You will be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and much more. If you'd like to change files, you can 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 you need and feel most comfy working with.
