What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use may make it more irritating and difficult for you to control the website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your cloud hosting
account with ease. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account.

We have also added help articles and educational videos, you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
