A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may offer more advanced functions too - 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 much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use can make it more irritating and complicated for you to manage your Internet site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud hosting account easily. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and instructional videos, which you may access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool allows you to do just about anything you need. It is part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the normal functions including renaming, copying or deleting files, you shall be able to use right-click menus so as to access more sophisticated ones. With a few clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. Furthermore, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content which you upload.
