What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use can make it more aggravating and hard for you to handle your website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
