Should I use FTP or File Manager to Upload Files?

August 31st, 2009

With we provide you 2 very easy ways to upload your files. You could either use FTP (file transfer protocol) or you could upload files using the File Manager which is web based and can be accessed from any browser.

Using FTP makes uploading much faster as it is a desktop based software and you do not have to login to your cPanel every time you need to add / edit / delete a file. FTP also lets you upload folder in one go where as the File Manager would only allow you to upload one file at a time.

With FTP you can also change file / folder permissions in a jiffy. If you don’t have a FTP, you can download one from free at FileZilla
