What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to handle the files inside an Internet hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager software tool supports a basic set of features whatever the Internet hosting CP it's part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all the information inside them, for example. Depending on the specific Control Panel, other functions may be supported also, like changing file permissions, managing archives or editing the content of a specific file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you could very easily handle your files along with your online presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one could make managing your content frustrating, especially if you haven't employed such a tool before.
