A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could provide more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use could make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control your site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud web hosting account easily. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall 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 a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also provided help articles and educational videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do just about anything you require. It's a part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the standard functions like copying, deleting or renaming files, you shall be able to use right-click menus to access more sophisticated ones. With a few mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to modify the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. What is more, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content because you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your personal computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
