A File Manager tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can provide you with more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use may make it more irritating and challenging for you to manage your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your cloud website hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you could also access context menus with more complex 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 using a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will allow you to do practically anything you need. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the regular features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you will be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With a few clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. In addition, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you can simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
