Find out more about the functions of a File Manager within a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels may offer more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence as a whole.
