What precisely is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to manage the files in a website hosting account as a substitute for a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager tool supports a standard set of capabilities no matter the web hosting Control Panel it's part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or entire folders along with all the data inside them, for example. Depending on the particular CP, other functions can be supported also, such as changing file permissions, managing archives or modifying the content of a specific file. Through an easy-to-use File Manager, you could easily manage your files along with your world-wide web presence in general, while a hard-to-use one could make handling your content irritating, specifically if you have not employed this type of a tool before.
