What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All website hosting accounts are managed using a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files which you have uploaded in the hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more advanced functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that this is the main tool you shall use to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it provides and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and can make managing your online presence more difficult.
