Determine what a File Manager really is and how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels may offer more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use could make it more aggravating and hard for you to manage the site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting

from our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It provides lots of capabilities and even traditional ones such as copying or moving files could be accessed using right-click context menus, that'll make you feel as if you’re working with an application on your home computer. If you relocate entire folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you shall not have to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to lots of other innovative features too, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area will be merely a mouse click away. What's more, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You could also use 3 separate file editors – a plain text editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a code editor.
