All web hosting accounts are managed via a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files which you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more complex features also, like control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the primary tool you shall use to manage your files, it is important to check in advance what options it includes and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your online presence more difficult.

File Manager in Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files that you upload to your website hosting account effortlessly. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - pick 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 in your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and video tutorials, which you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
