A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may offer more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more aggravating and tough for you to control your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared website hosting account with ease. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
