Determine what a File Manager really is and exactly how it differs from its desktop equivalent.
All web hosting accounts are handled through a CP and whatever the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files that you've uploaded in the hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there can be more advanced functions also, such as management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that is the primary tool you shall use to control your files, it is critical 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 online presence more challenging.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files which you upload to your shared hosting
account easily. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
