A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can offer more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use may make it more aggravating and hard for you to handle the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

The context menus shall give you access to many other innovative capabilities too, so stuff like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be merely a mouse click away. Furthermore, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You could also use 3 separate file editors – a code editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a plain text editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, will give you complete control over your data and will eliminate the need of employing third-party applications. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you shall only have to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you shall not have to use an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to relocate files and folders within the account just as easily and their structure shall be kept unchanged. If you want to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll simply have to use the right-click, because you can access all of these features using right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your home computer. To make handling your content much easier, you shall be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
