A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide you with more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use may make it more frustrating and hard for you to handle your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your web hosting account without any difficulty. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet 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 complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is an important part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, will give you 100 % control over your content and will eliminate the need of using third-party apps. If you'd like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you'll only have to drag-and-drop it, since the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to relocate folders and files within the account just as fast and their structure shall be kept intact. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to edit a file through a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only need to use the right-click, because you could access these functions from right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your computer. To make managing your content a whole lot easier, you shall be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
