A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can offer more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use may make it more irritating and hard for you to handle your website content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting account with ease. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video lessons, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our highly developed, albeit intuitive File Manager will give you total control over your content and you will not have any troubles managing the files and folders which you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a website hosting service before. The options it's offering are no more than a few clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones such as creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you shall feel as if you’re working on your home PC. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both inside the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you can upload content directly, which eradicates the need for any FTP client.
