What 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 web hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Each and every File Manager software tool supports a standard set of functions regardless of the website hosting CP it's part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or whole folders along with all of the information in them, for example. With regard to the specific CP, other features can be supported as well, such as changing file permissions, working with archives or changing the content of a specific file. Through an easy-to-use File Manager, you can comfortably handle your files as well as your online presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one could make handling your content aggravating, specifically if you haven't employed this type of a tool before.
