A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use could make it more irritating and hard for you to control the website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared website hosting account without any difficulty. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with various 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 educational videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated, although user-friendly File Manager will provide you with complete control over your content and you'll not have any issues managing the folders and files which you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it's providing are only a couple of clicks away, even the more advanced ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you'll feel like you’re working on your own computer system. In addition, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your personal computer. With the latter option, you may upload content directly, which removes the need for any FTP client.
