Learn what a File Manager is actually and exactly how it is different from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer you more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use can make it more frustrating and complicated for you to manage your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
