Learn more about the characteristics of a File Manager inside an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use may make it more frustrating and hard for you to handle your Internet site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared website hosting
account easily. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account.

We have also provided help articles and video tutorials, which you may access from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
