Determine what a File Manager is actually and just how it is different from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files in a web hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager software tool supports a standard set of features whatever the website hosting Control Panel it's part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all of the content inside them, for example. Depending on the particular Control Panel, other functions may be supported also, including changing file permissions, working with archives or editing the content of a given file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you may easily handle your files and your online presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one could make handling your content irritating, specifically if you haven't used this kind of a tool before.
