All web hosting accounts are handled via a CP and irrespective of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files that you've uploaded in the web hosting account and to complete basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there could be more complex functions as well, like management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool you shall employ to control your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it includes and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside 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 modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and educational videos, you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
