A File Manager software tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can offer more complex capabilities as well - 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 much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more irritating and challenging for you to control the website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
