How do I create a new file?
Creating files on your hosting package can either be done using the control panel of your subscription (cPanel) or through the FTP Client to which you can connect to your hosting package.
Create file from within cPanel
To create a file in your site through the cPanel you can follow the steps below:
- Login to cPanel
Click the File Manager option you will find in Files category.
On the popup window click the GO button.
Now you are on File Manager page of cPanel. Through this interface you can create the file you want. Click the New File option.
In the popup window enter the name of the file. i.e. new_file.php or new_file.html. The suffix you will give the file indicates the type of this file.
Create a file through FTP Client
Connect with FTP to your hosting package

Navigate to the folder in which you want to create the file. Right click and click the Create New File option.
