A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer you more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded using 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 irritating and complicated for you to manage your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
