Learn what a File Manager is actually and just how it is different from its pc counterpart.
All hosting accounts are handled using a Control Panel and regardless of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files you have uploaded in the Internet hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more complex features too, like control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the main tool you shall use to handle your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it includes and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your online presence more difficult.
File Manager in Website Hosting

solutions will make managing your information as simple as controlling files on your PC or notebook. You'll be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not only inside the account, but also directly from your computer, so you shall no longer need an FTP client to upload content. Also, the folder structure will be kept, so files from different folders won't get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You shall be able to set up and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and more. If you would like to modify files, you can easily do that via a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you may opt for the one that you need and feel most at ease working with.
