All hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to look into the files that you've uploaded in the Internet hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there could be more complex features as well, including management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the primary tool you will employ to manage your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your online presence more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also included help articles and educational videos, that you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you total control over your web content and will take away the need of using third-party software. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you will simply have to drag-and-drop it, since the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not need to use an FTP client anymore. You'll also be able to relocate files and folders inside your account just as fast and their structure will be kept undamaged. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to edit a file by using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will simply need to use the right-click, since you could access all of these features through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as if you’re working on your personal computer. To make managing your content even easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
