Learn what a File Manager really is and precisely how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
All website hosting accounts are managed via a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files that you've uploaded in the web hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more complex functions also, like management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the main tool you'll employ to manage your files, it's important to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more challenging.
