Determine what a File Manager is actually and the way it is different from its pc equivalent.
All website hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files that you've uploaded in the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, like management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the primary tool you'll employ to handle your files, it's important to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and can make managing your online presence more difficult.
