cPanel Files

Updated: November 16, 2020

A detailed description and explanation of cPanel App function.

  • File Manager

      File Manager allows you to access, view, modify, add, and delete files from your account and also allows you to manage your site through HTTP, FTP, or third party application. If you need to upload many files, we recommend to use an FTP client, which allows you to upload entire directories and files.

  • Images

      Modify and manage images that are saved to your account. Thumbnailer allows you to create thumbnails from images in a directory. Scaler allows you to change the size of images in a directory. Converter allows you to change the file type of all images in a directory. For example, change .jpg files to .png files.

  • Directory Privacy

      Secure your directories. Set a password to protect certain directories of your account. When you enable this feature, a user that tries to open a protected folder will be prompted to enter a username and password before they can access your content.

  • Disk Usage

      Disk Usage allows you to monitor your account's available space with the Disk Usage feature. All presented figures are relative to the largest directory. Use the File Manager to see usage data for individual files and the MySQL feature to see data for individual databases.

  • Web Disk

      Create a Web Disk account to manage, navigate, upload, and download files on your web server. Web Disk account directories exist relative to your accounts home directory. The home icon signifies your home directory ( /home/username ).

  • FTP Accounts

      Add and configure FTP Accounts to get your website uploaded to the internet fast. FTP allows you to manage the files that are associated with your website through an FTP client such as FileZilla (Windows), WinSCP (Windows) or Cyber Duck (Mac).

  • FTP Connections

      FTP Connections allows you to monitor visitors that are logged into your site through FTP. Terminate FTP connections to prevent file access by unwarranted users.

  • Backup

      With Backup, you are able to download a zipped copy of your entire website or a part of your website that you can save to your computer. When you backup your website, you have an extra copy of your information in case something happens to your host. It's recommended to always have a backup of your website saved.

  • Backup Wizard

      The Backup Wizard feature allows you to download a compressed copy of all or part of your website and also allows you to upload an existing partial backup file in order to restore parts of your website.

  • GiT Version Control

      Create and manage Git repositories. You can use Git to maintain any set of files and track the history of changes from multiple editors (version control).

  • Directory Restoration

      Use this interface to restore individual file and directory files from their backups.
