A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use can make it more annoying and tough for you to control your website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud hosting account effortlessly. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, that you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated, although easy-to-use File Manager provides you with full control over your content and you'll not have any troubles managing the folders and files you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is giving you are just a few clicks away, even the more complex ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you'll feel as if you’re working on your home PC. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your PC. With the latter option, you can easily upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
