Learn what a File Manager really is and how it is different from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could offer more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use could make it more annoying and complicated for you to manage the site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud website hosting
account effortlessly. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account.

We have also provided help articles and educational videos, which you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
