All web hosting accounts are handled using a CP and irrespective of the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files you have uploaded in the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more complex features too, including control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more challenging.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You could upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
