A File Manager tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer you more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use may make it more annoying and complicated for you to manage your Internet site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files which 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.
