A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use could make it more irritating and tough for you to handle the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
