A File Manager software tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can offer more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to control the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all of the files which you upload to your web hosting account without any difficulty. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - choose 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 in your account, you could also access context menus with more complex 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 change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also provided help articles and video tutorials, that you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated, though easy-to-use File Manager provides you with 100 % control over your content and you will not have any difficulties handling the folders and files which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is offering are no more than a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more advanced ones including 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 will feel as if you’re working on your computer. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your PC. With the latter alternative, you may upload content directly, which takes away the need for any FTP client.
