Learn what a File Manager is actually and exactly how it differs from its pc counterpart.
All website hosting accounts are handled via a Control Panel and whatever the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files which you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more complex features also, such as management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your online presence more challenging.
