What exactly is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All hosting accounts are managed from a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files that you've uploaded inside the website hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there could be more advanced functions also, including management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the primary tool you'll use to handle your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it provides and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your online presence more complicated.
