Learn what a File Manager really is and how it is different from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could provide more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more aggravating and complicated for you to control your website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
