What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All hosting accounts are handled through a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you've uploaded inside the website hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the primary tool you shall employ to manage 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 can be a burden and can make managing your presence online more difficult.
