A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use may make it more frustrating and difficult for you to handle your website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
