What exactly is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager is a web-based interface that allows you to control the files inside a website hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager software tool supports a standard set of features whatever the Internet hosting CP it is a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all the data inside them, for example. With regard to the specific Control Panel, other features can be supported too, including changing file permissions, handling archives or editing the content of a given file.
