WebShell allows you to copy, move, delete, and rename files and directories in your home directory on the server. Also, you can use it to upload, download, compress and decompress files as well as preview them in the browser.
Starting from H-Sphere version 2.3, htProtect utility is integrated into WebShell. Protect utility allows you to password-protect any directory on your site so only authorized visitors can open its content with their browsers.
To launch WebShell, click the File Manager icon on the Quick Access page in the Account menu.
WebShell and Protect manuals are available from the WebShell interface, Help button.
