cPanel File Management Tools

File Backups

You can save specific directories of the website directly to your computer. In the event of a website failure or issue, you are able to upload the backup files and restore your website. Download your entire home directory, MySQL database, email forwarders, and filters.


File Backups

An easy-to-use tool that provides a step-by-step way for you to create backups, as well as restoring backup files. This feature allows you to restore your files either fully or partially.


Backup Wizard

The older Legacy File Manager is for those who are comfortable with the older cPanel File Manager. This tool allows you to access the server from any computer and location. The easy to use interface has the options to create new files and folders, upload and download files, delete, rename, copy, move, change permissions, and edit files and folders.


Legacy File Manager

File Manager has the same features as the Legacy File Manager, with the exception of the WYSIWYG HTML editor. The HTML editor allows website owners to quickly make simple modifications to website files. File Manager also has an updated look and feel which makes navigating the server even easier.


FTP Account Management

cPanel lets you create multiple FTP accounts. The FTP creation tool allows you to define levels of access, set transfer quotas, modify passwords, and provides configuration files. With cPanel FTP you can use third-party FTP clients to access your server as well.


Web Disk

Web Disk allows you to access files on your server as if they were located on your computer. Making it easier to make changes to server files if you’re uncomfortable using the File Manager or an FTP program.


Disk Space Usage

A useful tool for viewing where data is most concentrated. If there is a problem with disk space, the graphical results page quickly shows you where the most disk space is being used.


FTP Session Control

With multiple FTP users, you can become overwhelmed and not know who is accessing the server at any given time. The FTP Session Control tools provide a way for you to see who is currently accessing the server. View which user is currently logged in, the IP address they are connected from, the login time, status, view Process ID, and manually disconnect a user.
