Learn more about the attributes of a File Manager within a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
All web hosting accounts are managed via a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you've uploaded inside the web hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there can be more advanced functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the primary tool you'll use to control your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it provides and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and can make managing your presence online more difficult.
