File manager gebruiken in Plesk

A File Manager is computer program that handles files. There are quite a number of operations that can be done when using a File Manager; you can upload files, create new folders, delete files, rename folders or files and change the permission settings of the files or folders. It is almost the same as an FTP or File Transfer Protocol that is mainly used in web hosting because they also provide network connectivity to the server which will then send it to the website. Its main feature is that it is responsible in transferring or exchanging files over the internet. With FTP, you can either download or upload a file to a server. If you currently do not have an FTP program, Plesk has a built-in File Manager that can let you do what an FTP does.
