Find out more about the characteristics of a File Manager inside an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may offer you more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use may make it more annoying and challenging for you to control your website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
