All web hosting accounts are managed through a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files which you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, like management of permissions and archives.

You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and video lessons, which you may access right from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
