A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer you more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use may make it more annoying and hard for you to manage the site content, especially if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared web hosting service through our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It comes with numerous features and even regular ones like copying or moving files may be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re working with an app on your home PC. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you will not need to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to many other advanced functions as well, so things like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be just a click away. What's more, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, because our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can also use 3 different file editors – a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will allow you to do practically anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the standard features like copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus to access more advanced ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to alter the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. Additionally, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you may simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content you upload.
