A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer you more complex functions as well - 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 employed far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use may make it more aggravating and challenging for you to handle your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting account easily. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily 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 within your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a variety 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 video tutorials, which you may access from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will allow you to do just about anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the regular functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus so as to access more sophisticated ones. With several clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. What is more, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content as you can just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
