A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more frustrating and hard for you to handle your website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

You'll be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and more.
