FTP is the quickest and easiest way to quickly transfer images and other files to your account. File manager is a tool in your control panel, Through a web-based File Manager interface each user is enabled to carry out a wide range of file manipulation operations to create, edit, rename, move, copy, delete, print files. Personally I prefer FTP because if you want to upload several files FTP works faster and much better than File Manager.

Regards

Aditya

For fixing clients sites I use file manager since its easier to get in and out faster. For personal sites and such I use ftp as it makes transfering files faster and easier.

I prefer FileZilla which is a reliable FTP server for Windows. It is also easy to
manage multiple FTP logins.

Hi,
The different between the two is that

FTP refers to a means of transferring files between computers, or the act of transferring files this way.

Your File Manager is a tool available in your Control Panel that allows you to see, review, organize, and delete your files.

From the File Manager you can also create new files, edit existing files, and access your Password Manager and other tools.

So i use FILE MANAGER as its better. filezila rocks !

FTP would be much comfortable to use as to my experience, the tools are much easier to use on and I'd say it is more appropriate for transferring files.

FTP is a ideal way to manipulate your site contents. If you use Filezilla as a FTP software then your work becomes more easy.

Hello IkY0294,

I prefer File Manager to FTP in C-panel.

We use both ... depending on the application. Stay with what you're comfortable with, as long as it gets the job done.

Another vote for FileZilla, it's free and fairly easy to use.
