All website hosting accounts are handled via a Control Panel and irrespective of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files that you've uploaded in the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there could be more advanced features too, such as management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that's the primary tool that you will use to handle your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it offers and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more difficult.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared website hosting account effortlessly. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
