What exactly is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more advanced features 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 way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more annoying and hard for you to handle your Internet site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
