A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels may provide you with more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more aggravating and difficult for you to handle the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
