Discover more about the capabilities of a File Manager within a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can provide you with more complex functions also - 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 way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use may make it more frustrating and difficult for you to control your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
