A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can provide more complex capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use may make it more irritating and tough for you to control your website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
