A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may provide more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use can make it more aggravating and tough for you to handle your Internet site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account with ease. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, which you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
