All web hosting accounts are managed using a CP and regardless of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you have uploaded in the hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more complex features as well, including management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your web presence more challenging.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting account with ease. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system 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 can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
