A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could provide more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded through 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 presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use could make it more aggravating and complicated for you to manage your site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud web hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your 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 can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will 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 edit 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 have also included help articles and video lessons, which you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is an important part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you 100 % control over your data and will take away the need of using third-party apps. If you wish to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you shall only need to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to transfer folders and files inside your account just as easily and their structure shall be kept undamaged. If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply have to use the right-click, because you may access these features via right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your home PC. To make managing your content a whole lot easier, you'll be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, size or name.
