All hosting accounts are handled using a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files that you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions too, such as management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that's the main tool that you will use to manage your files, it's crucial to check in advance what options it comes with and if it shall work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your web presence more challenging.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our custom Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your shared website hosting account effortlessly. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also included help articles and instructional videos, which you may access from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our highly developed, albeit easy-to-use File Manager provides you with full control over your content and you won't have any troubles managing the folders and files you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used a web hosting service before. The options it's offering are no more than a couple of clicks away, even the more complex ones such as creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Through right-click context menus, you'll feel as if you’re working on your computer. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you are able to upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
