A File Manager tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could provide more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use could make it more irritating and challenging for you to handle your website content, especially if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your shared website hosting account easily. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your 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 advanced options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia website hosting CP, will give you full control over your web content and will take away the need of using third-party applications. If you'd like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you will only have to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to relocate files and folders inside your account just as fast and their structure shall be kept undamaged. If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to edit a file by using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only need to use the right-click, given that you may access all of these functions through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your home PC. To make managing your content much easier, you will be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
