A File Manager software tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could provide more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use could make it more aggravating and complicated for you to handle your Internet site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
