A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer you more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more aggravating and difficult for you to handle the website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also included help articles and video lessons, which you may access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
