All web hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel and no matter the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there could be more complex functions also, such as management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the main tool that you'll use to manage your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it provides and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your web presence harder.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is 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'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added 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 File Manager tool will enable you to do pretty much anything you need. It is part of the Hepsia CP, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the regular functions including renaming, copying or deleting files, you shall be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With several mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. Also, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content given that you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
