Learn what a File Manager is actually and just how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to control the files in an Internet hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Every single File Manager software tool supports a fundamental set of functions regardless of the web hosting Control Panel it is a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or whole folders along with all the data in them, for example. With regard to the particular Control Panel, other capabilities can be supported too, including changing file permissions, handling archives or editing the content of a particular file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you could effortlessly handle your files and your online presence in general, while a hard-to-use one may make managing your content annoying, particularly if you haven't employed this type of a tool before.
