A File Manager tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels may offer you more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more irritating and tough for you to manage your site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your cloud hosting account effortlessly. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your Internet browser where 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'll 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 modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also added help articles and instructional videos, that you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do virtually anything you want. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the regular functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you shall be able to use right-click menus in order to access more complex ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Furthermore, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content as you may simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
