What exactly is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer you more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use can make it more annoying and tough for you to control your Internet site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
