A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more complex capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use may make it more irritating and hard for you to handle your website content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files which you upload to your web hosting account with ease. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
