A File Manager software tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide you with more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use may make it more irritating and complicated for you to handle your website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
