A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use could make it more frustrating and challenging for you to manage your Internet site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
