A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may provide more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more irritating and hard for you to control your Internet site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which 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 easily. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also provided help articles and instructional videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do virtually anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the regular functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more complex ones. With a couple of clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application requires it or to alter the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content given that you may simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content that you upload.
