A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer more advanced functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use can make it more frustrating and difficult for you to handle your Internet site content, especially if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud web hosting account with ease. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your computer system 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 shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also included help articles and educational videos, which you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated, though user-friendly File Manager will give you total control over your content and you'll not have any troubles managing the files and folders you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a web hosting service before. The options it's providing are just a few mouse clicks away, even the more complex 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. From right-click context menus, you'll feel like you’re working on your desktop computer. In addition, 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 are able to upload content directly, which takes away the need for an FTP client.
