Learn what a File Manager is and precisely how it is different from its desktop equivalent.
A File Manager tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can provide more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use can make it more aggravating and challenging for you to manage your Internet site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
