A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can provide more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use can make it more aggravating and complicated for you to control your site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared web hosting account without any difficulty. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, that you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
