Find out more about the capabilities of a File Manager inside an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer you more complex features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use may make it more annoying and hard for you to manage your site content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
