Determine what a File Manager really is and exactly how it is different from its pc counterpart.
All website hosting accounts are handled from a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there could be more advanced functions also, such as control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the main tool you will use to handle your files, it is important to check in advance what options it offers and if it shall suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and can make managing your online presence more challenging.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting
accounts are controlled using the innovative Hepsia Control Panel, that includes a feature-rich File Manager tool. Even though you may have never had a web hosting account before, you will be able to control your information without difficulty, because the File Manager is quite intuitive to use. It requires just a few clicks to create, rename or delete a file, while moving a file or a whole folder is as simple as dragging-and-dropping it to the desirable location. You'll be able to upload data in the very same way - simply pick the files on your personal computer and drag them to your browser, then drop them in the File Manager, that will do the rest. Handy right-click menus will enable you to pack/unpack archives, to modify file permissions, to set up password-protected areas or to edit a file with simple and advanced editors.
