What precisely is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All hosting accounts are managed using a CP and whatever the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files that you have uploaded in the hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there could be more advanced functions also, like management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the main tool you shall employ to handle your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your presence online more difficult.
