A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer you more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more irritating and tough for you to control the website content, especially if you lack previous experience.

You will be able to upload data in the very same way - just select the files on your personal computer and drag them to your internet browser, then drop them within the File Manager, that will do the rest. Practical right-click menus will allow you to pack/unpack archives, to alter file permissions, to set up password-protected areas or to edit a file with simple and advanced editors.
