A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may offer you more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files could be uploaded and downloaded via 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 presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage the website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded.

We've also added help articles and video tutorials, which you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
