How to upload my files in cPanel?

Posted December 1, 2015

cPanel has a built-in File Manager which makes uploading, removing, creating and modifying files easier.

To get started, follow these steps:

1. Log into your cPanel account.

2. Click the File Manager icon.

3. At the File Manager page, double click on the public_html directory.


All of your files should be uploaded inside public_html. This is the only directory that is publicly viewable.

Also, don't remove any files or directories outside of your public_html directory by default. 

Those are system files. Unless you know what you're doing, don't touch them.

Otherwise, you'll be penalized a service fee for the restoration of your account, if problems occur.

4. To upload a file, click the Upload icon.

5. Press the Select button to open the file browser, or simply drag and drop files from your computer.

6. You're done!


Extra Tip:

To create directories or folders inside public_html, simply click the Folder icon.
