Learn what a File Manager is really and the way it differs from its pc equivalent.
All web hosting accounts are managed via a CP and no matter the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files that you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there can be more advanced features as well, including management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the main tool you will use to handle your files, it is crucial to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your web presence more challenging.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared hosting
account with ease. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same manner - choose 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 within your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, that you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.
