Learn what a File Manager is actually and exactly how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer you more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use may make it more frustrating and complicated for you to manage your site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
