A File Manager software tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can offer more complex capabilities also - 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 used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use may make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control the site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
