A File Manager tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use can make it more irritating and complicated for you to control your website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
