What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All web hosting accounts are handled 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 which you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there can be more advanced features too, such as control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool you will use to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your web presence harder.
