All web hosting accounts are managed from a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you have uploaded inside the web hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there may be more complex functions too, like control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the primary tool that you will employ to control your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your web presence more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, which you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our innovative, although easy-to-work with File Manager will give you 100 % control over your content and you won't have any problems handling the files and folders you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a web hosting service before. The options it is giving you are just several mouse clicks away, even the more sophisticated 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. Using right-click context menus, you'll feel as if you’re working on your computer. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter option, you could upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
