What is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
All web hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and whatever the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that is the main tool that you'll employ to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your presence online harder.
