All web hosting accounts are handled using a Control Panel and irrespective of the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look at the files you have uploaded in the hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more advanced features too, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the primary tool you'll employ to manage your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it offers and if it'll work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your web presence more difficult.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool allows you to do pretty much anything you need. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the standard features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to change the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. Additionally, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you could just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
