A File Manager tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide you with more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more annoying and complicated for you to handle the website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also added help articles and video tutorials, which you may access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do just about anything you need. It's an element of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the normal functions like copying, deleting or renaming files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more complex ones. With several mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. Also, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content because you could simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content you upload.
