All web hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files which you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there can be more advanced features as well, such as management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that this is the primary tool you'll employ to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your web presence more complicated.

File Manager in Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files which you upload to your website hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and video lessons, that you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
