A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can offer more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used 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 not easy to use can make it more annoying and tough for you to handle your website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager which comes with our shared hosting plans shall make managing your data as basic as handling files on your personal computer or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not only inside the account, but also straight from your PC, so you will no longer need an FTP client to upload information. In addition, the folder structure shall be kept, so files from different folders won't get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You shall be able to set up and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and more. If you want to modify files, you may do that via several different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you may pick the one that you need and feel most comfortable working with.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is an integral part of our custom Hepsia hosting CP, will give you complete control over your web content and will remove the need of using third-party software. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you'll simply have to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you shall not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to move folders and files within the account just as easily and their structure will be kept undamaged. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to edit a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only have to use the right-click, considering that you can access these functions through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your personal computer. To make handling your content that much easier, you shall be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
