All website hosting accounts are managed via a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files that you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there may be more complex functions also, such as management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the primary tool you shall use to manage your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your presence online more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your PC 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 sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, which you may access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced, albeit easy-to-use File Manager will provide you with full control over your content and you will not have any issues managing the files and folders you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it is giving you are only a few clicks away, even the more complex ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you'll feel like you’re working on your home computer system. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you can easily upload content directly, which takes away the need for any FTP client.
