A File Manager software tool is available in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide more advanced features as well - 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 far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use may make it more frustrating and tough for you to manage the site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Web Hosting

When you order a shared web hosting from our company, you may take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, that's part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It offers lots of features and even conventional ones such as copying and moving files could be accessed from right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re employing an application on your home PC. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you will not need to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a whole lot of other innovative capabilities too, so stuff like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be only a click away. What is more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can also use 3 separate file editors – a code editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a plain text editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool allows you to do virtually anything you require. It's an element of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the regular functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With a few clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case 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 need an FTP program to upload new content as you can just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content you upload.
