What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could provide you with more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage your Internet site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
