All hosting accounts are managed from a Control Panel and no matter the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files which you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions too, like management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it provides and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your online presence more difficult.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may 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 modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our highly developed, although user-friendly File Manager offers you full control over your content and you will not have any challenges handling the folders and files you create 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 no more than several clicks away, even the more advanced ones including setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your home PC. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both inside the account and from your laptop or computer. With the latter alternative, you may upload content directly, which eradicates the need for an FTP client.
