A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer more complex features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use can make it more frustrating and hard for you to control your Internet site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account with ease. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer 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 could also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also included help articles and instructional videos, you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
