A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could provide you with more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more frustrating and challenging for you to handle the website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Hosting

When you order a hosting plan through our company, you can take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, that is part of our Hepsia hosting CP. It includes numerous capabilities and even traditional ones such as copying and moving files can be accessed from right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re using an app on your desktop computer. If you transfer whole folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you shall not have to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to a lot of other sophisticated features also, so things like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be merely a mouse click away. Furthermore, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You may also use three separate file editors – a code editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a plain text editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our highly developed, though intuitive File Manager will give you full control over your content and you'll not have any challenges handling the files and folders that you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it is providing are no more than a few clicks away, even the more complex ones like creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your computer. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your personal computer. With the latter option, you are able to upload content directly, which takes away the need for any FTP client.
