Find out more about the attributes of a File Manager within an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may provide you with more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use may make it more annoying and tough for you to handle the site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
