A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide you with more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use could make it more irritating and complicated for you to handle your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager included with our hosting packages will make controlling your content as easy as controlling files on your desktop computer or notebook. You shall be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only within the account, but also straight from your PC, so you'll no longer need an FTP client to upload data. Furthermore, the folder structure shall be kept, so files from separate folders shall not get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access a variety of functions. You will be able to create and extract archives, to create password-protected areas plus much more. If you'd like to modify files, you can do that using several different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you can pick the one that you need and feel most comfy working with.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, will give you full control over your data and will remove the need of using third-party apps. If you want to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you will only need to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not have to employ an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to transfer folders and files within the account just as easily and their structure shall be kept the same. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to edit a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only need to use the right-click, given that you could access all of these functions from right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your home PC. To make handling your content much easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
