A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer you more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use could make it more irritating and hard for you to manage the site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared website hosting account effortlessly.

You can upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also included help articles and video lessons, which you may access from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

You'll also be able to move folders and files inside your account just as easily and their structure shall be kept intact. If you want to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply need to use the right-click, given that you may access all these functions from right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your computer system. To make handling your content even easier, you shall be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
