All hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and no matter the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more advanced features too, like management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that this is the main tool that you will use to handle your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it includes and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your presence online more difficult.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared website hosting account easily. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your 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 complex options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
