Find out more about the characteristics of a File Manager inside a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels may offer you more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use may make it more aggravating and difficult for you to manage the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
