A File Manager tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use could make it more annoying and hard for you to manage the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files which you upload to your hosting account with ease. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same manner - select 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 in your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and video lessons, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the standard features like renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus in order 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 if a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Furthermore, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you can just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
