How to Create a New File Using the cPanel File Manager

You can create a new file in a text editor and upload it to your GreenGeeks account using an FTP program, but if you prefer a web-based alternative, there is a File Manager built into cPanel.

To access the File Manager, log in to GreenGeeks and go to cPanel by clicking the “cPanel Login” button in the “Quick Server Login” section.

When you log in to the File Manager, you will be in the root directory for your account. Most of the time you’ll be working with website files, and they are located in the “public_html” directory.
