Determine what a File Manager is really and just how it differs from its desktop counterpart.
All web hosting accounts are handled via a Control Panel and irrespective of the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files which you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there could be more complex functions too, including control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to work with than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the main tool you'll use to manage your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your online presence more challenging.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all of the files which you upload to your shared web hosting
account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using 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 have also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its features.

If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file by using a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only need to use the right-click, since you may access these functions through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your home computer. To make managing your content that much easier, you shall be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, size or name.
