A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to handle your website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files that you upload to your web hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can 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 can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and instructional videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced, though user-friendly File Manager offers you 100 % control over your content and you'll not have any difficulties managing the folders and files that you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used a hosting service before. The options it is giving you are just a couple of clicks away, even the more advanced ones such as creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your home computer. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you can easily upload content directly, which removes the need for any FTP client.
