A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can offer you more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use may make it more frustrating and challenging for you to control the website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your web 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 create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also provided help articles and instructional videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our innovative, albeit easy-to-work with File Manager offers you full control over your content and you'll not have any issues handling the files and folders which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it is giving you are only a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more complex ones such as creating a password-protected folder, setting up 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 shall feel like you’re working on your home PC. Additionally, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both inside the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you may upload content directly, which eliminates the need for an FTP client.
