A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer you more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use can make it more irritating and hard for you to handle your site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files you upload to your web hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You could upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and video lessons, which you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will permit you to do practically anything you require. It's an element of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the normal functions including copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more sophisticated ones. With a few clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to edit the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you may just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
