A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer you more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use may make it more frustrating and hard for you to control the site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
