A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can offer more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more frustrating and challenging for you to handle the site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
