A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide you with more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use can make it more irritating and challenging for you to manage your Internet site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - 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 within your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will permit you to do pretty much anything you require. It is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the normal functions like copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus to access more sophisticated ones. With several mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you can simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
