A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer you more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used far 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 which is hard to use can make it more frustrating and hard for you to control your Internet site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
