A File Manager tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may provide you with more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use could make it more frustrating and challenging for you to manage the site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files which you upload to your shared website hosting account without any difficulty. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
