All hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you've uploaded in the website hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there can be more advanced features also, including management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the main tool you will use to control your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it includes and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and can make managing your presence online more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - 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 inside your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up 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 Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also provided help articles and educational videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you want. It is an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the normal functions such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With a few mouse clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to alter the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. Additionally, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you may simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
