A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may provide more complex capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the easier 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 which is hard to use could make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
