Determine what a File Manager is and precisely how it differs from its desktop equivalent.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that allows you to control the files in a hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every single File Manager software tool supports a basic set of functions no matter the web hosting CP it is a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all of the information in them, for instance. Depending on the particular Control Panel, other functions may be supported also, such as changing file permissions, handling archives or editing the content of a given file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you may comfortably control your files and your presence online in general, while a hard-to-use one may make managing your content aggravating, especially if you haven't employed this kind of a tool before.
