A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use may make it more frustrating and challenging for you to handle your site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
