Learn more about the capabilities of a File Manager inside an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use could make it more aggravating and challenging for you to manage your Internet site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
