A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to command the files in 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 features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more annoying and complicated for you to control your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud web hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and educational videos, which you may access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our advanced, albeit easy-to-use File Manager will provide you with full control over your content and you will not have any problems managing the files and folders that you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it is providing are only several clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones including setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you shall feel as if you’re working on your computer. Additionally, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter alternative, you can easily upload content directly, which takes away the need for any FTP client.
