Managing Your Hosting Account's Files

Your hosting account is on a computer — just like a personal computer. So, just like a personal computer you can manage your website's files and directories, with tasks like:

  • Uploading
  • Moving
  • Archiving (zipping) and unarchiving

Changes you make through your hosting account's file manager will take effect on the Internet immediately.
