A File Manager tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control 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 offer you more complex capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use can make it more annoying and challenging for you to manage your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
