A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more irritating and tough for you to manage your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your Internet 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 shall be able to create 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 variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and video tutorials, which you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, shall give you 100 % control over your content and will eliminate the need of using third-party applications.
