A File Manager tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer you more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with 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 online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use may make it more aggravating and challenging for you to manage the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.

It takes just a few mouse clicks to set up, rename or delete a file, while transferring a file or an entire folder is as basic as dragging-and-dropping it to the needed location. You will be able to upload content in the same exact way - simply pick the files on your personal computer and drag them to your web browser, then drop them within the File Manager, that shall do the rest. Handy right-click menus will enable you to pack/unpack archives, to modify file permissions, to set up password-protected areas or to edit a file with simple and advanced editors.

You will also be able to move folders and files in the account just as fast and their structure will be kept intact. If you want to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to edit a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply need to use the right-click, since you could access all these features through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your home computer. To make managing your content even easier, you'll be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
