Hi, Im Greg im taking a big poll on the web about what People use more FTP or File Manager in cPanel..

I want to know what people like most and think its easy to use.

I like to use File Manager but would like to start using FTP any heads up or anything? Should I stay with File Manager?

I never use cPanel; I always use FTP. Try using FileZilla.

Also take a look at DropBox, it's a free program that syncs a folder across computers.

You can use Filezilla on a Mac, thou I prefer Fetch.


As to the question, FTP almost always, though File manager has the advantage of being able to unzip.


Does anyone else have an irritation with Filezilla dropping a connection and then taking a while to reconnect?

File Manager in cPanel is circumlocutory; FTP is more smoothly and faster.
Why everyone use FileZilla is a mystery; this is not hte best.

If the file is very large I choose FTP to upload.You can try FileZilla.and the file manager is a tool in cPanel,you can also use it to do some operations,such changing file attributes,compressing files,extracting files and so on.

I would recommend Filezilla. Very convenient and agile. Although, you can also use File manager in cPanel as it is also a good option incase you do not like Filezilla

I use FTP (FileZilla) and don't see any reason to stop.

I use either Filezilla (FTP) or go through my SSH program which has a built in File Manager while logged into shell.
