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:
- Archiving (zipping) and unarchiving
Changes you make through your hosting account’s file manager will take effect on the Internet immediately.
