A File Manager software tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could provide you with more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more aggravating and challenging for you to manage your Internet site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The feature-rich File Manager which comes with our shared hosting plans shall make handling your information as simple as controlling files on your computer or laptop. You'll be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not just in the account, but also directly from your computer, so you will no longer need an FTP client to upload information. In addition, the folder structure shall be maintained, so files from separate folders won't get mixed. You could also use right-click context menus and access various features. You'll be able to create and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas and more. If you would like to modify files, you can do that through a number of editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you could pick the one that you need and feel most at ease working with.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, will give you 100 % control over your data and will remove the need of using third-party applications. If you want to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you will simply need to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not have to employ an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to transfer files and folders inside the account just as easily and their structure will be kept unchanged. If you would like 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 using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only need to use the right-click, because you may access these functions using right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your computer. To make handling your content much easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
