A File Manager tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use could make it more annoying and hard for you to manage the site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
