A File Manager tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can offer more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control your site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
