A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could offer more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use could make it more annoying and complicated for you to handle the site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

The tool is an important part of the in-house developed Hepsia CP and is just as basic and intuitive to use. It takes only a mouse click to set up, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your ease and comfort, you will be able to sort the content by type, name, size or last modified date. Since the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you can quickly transfer any content within the account, including folders, and their structure will be preserved.
