Determine what a File Manager is really and how it differs from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can offer more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use could make it more aggravating and challenging for you to handle your Internet site content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared website hosting
account without any difficulty. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer 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 sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change 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 provided help articles and video tutorials, that you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
