All website hosting accounts are managed using a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files you have uploaded in the hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there could be more advanced functions too, including management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that is the primary tool that you'll use to control your files, it is important to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and can make managing your presence online more complicated.

File Manager in Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files which you upload to your website hosting account effortlessly. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and video tutorials, which you may access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will permit you to do virtually anything you want. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the standard features including copying, deleting or renaming files, you shall be able to use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With a couple of clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. What is more, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content because you can simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content you upload.
