A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could provide you with more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use may make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage the website content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your web hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using 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 have also provided help articles and video tutorials, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our highly developed, although easy-to-use File Manager offers you full control over your content and you'll not have any challenges managing the folders and files which you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a web hosting service before. The options it is offering are no more than a few clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you'll feel as if you’re working on your home computer system. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter option, you may upload content directly, which removes the need for any FTP client.
