All web hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel and whatever the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you have uploaded in the Internet hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions too, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the main tool you will employ to manage your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it provides and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your online presence more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting account easily. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and video lessons, you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
