A File Manager software tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can offer more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way 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 which is hard to use may make it more annoying and complicated for you to control your site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
