All hosting accounts are handled from a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look into the files that you've uploaded in the web hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more complex functions too, such as control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the primary tool you'll use to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your presence online more challenging.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all the files which you upload to your shared website hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also added help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you require. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the regular features like copying, deleting or renaming files, you shall be able to use right-click menus in order to access more advanced ones. With several mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your pc straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
