A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer you more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more annoying and tough for you to control your site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your web hosting account easily. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also added help articles and educational videos, which you may access right from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.
