A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer you more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use can make it more frustrating and difficult for you to manage your Internet site content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud web hosting account with ease. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same way - 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 inside your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a variety of 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 educational videos, that you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated, though intuitive File Manager will provide you with total control over your content and you will not have any issues managing the files and folders which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is giving you are only a few mouse clicks away, even the more complex ones including creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Through right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your home computer system. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both inside the account and from your computer. With the latter option, you can easily upload content directly, which eliminates the need for an FTP client.
