Discover more about the features of a File Manager within a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to control 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 offer more complex capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more aggravating and tough for you to manage your site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
If you buy a Linux shared web hosting package

It provides a lot of functions and even regular ones including copying or moving files can be accessed from right-click context menus, that will make you feel as if you’re working with an app on your desktop computer. If you relocate entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you will not need to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to many other innovative features as well, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a click away. What's more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, considering that our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can also use 3 separate file editors – a code editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a plain text editor.
