A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use may make it more irritating and difficult for you to manage the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
