A File Manager tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use could make it more irritating and complicated for you to control the website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files that you upload to your website hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet 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'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
