A File Manager software tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may provide more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can 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'll be for you to control your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use could make it more frustrating and tough for you to manage the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
