A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to manage the files in a website hosting account in lieu of a third-party FTP program. Every single File Manager software tool supports a fundamental set of functions regardless of the Internet hosting CP it is a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all the content in them, for example. In accordance with the particular CP, other features might be supported also, like changing file permissions, working with archives or editing the content of a particular file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you may comfortably manage your files as well as your world-wide web presence in general, while a hard-to-use one could make handling your content irritating, especially if you have not used this type of a tool before.
