What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All web hosting accounts are handled from a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files which you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more complex features as well, such as control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool you will use to handle your files, it's important to check in advance what options it offers and if it shall suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your web presence more complicated.
