A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can offer more complex capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although 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 manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use may make it more irritating and difficult for you to handle the site content, especially if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files that you upload to your web hosting account with ease. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify 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 provided help articles and instructional videos, which you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
