Learn more about the features of a File Manager inside a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files in a hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Each and every File Manager tool supports a basic set of capabilities no matter the Internet hosting CP it is part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or whole folders along with all the information inside them, for example. Based on the specific CP, other functions might be supported as well, such as changing file permissions, working with archives or editing the content of a particular file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you can conveniently control your files and your online presence in general, while a hard-to-use one may make controlling your content frustrating, particularly if you have not used this type of a tool before.
