Learn what a File Manager is really and just how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files inside a website hosting account as a substitute for a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager software tool supports a fundamental set of capabilities regardless of the hosting CP it is part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or whole folders along with all of the content inside them, for instance. In accordance with the specific CP, other features could be supported as well, including changing file permissions, working with archives or editing the content of a specific file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you can very easily handle your files as well as your online presence in general, while a hard-to-use one may make controlling your content frustrating, especially if you haven't used this kind of a tool before.
File Manager in Web Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager which comes with our web hosting
packages will make controlling your data as simple as handling files on your PC or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not only within the account, but also directly from your laptop or computer, so you shall no longer require an FTP client to upload data. In addition, the folder structure will be preserved, so files from separate folders won't get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access various features. You will be able to create and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas and a lot more. If you'd like to change files, you can easily do that via several different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you could pick the one you need and feel most at ease working with.
