A File Manager software tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may provide more complex capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use can make it more frustrating and difficult for you to control your site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all of the files which you upload to your shared website hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a number of 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 instructional videos, you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated, albeit intuitive File Manager will give you full control over your content and you won't have any problems managing the folders and files which you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it's giving you are no more than a few clicks away, even the more advanced ones such as creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your home PC. Additionally, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you are able to upload content directly, which eradicates the need for any FTP client.
