All website hosting accounts are managed through a Control Panel and no matter the type of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files that you've uploaded in the website hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there could be more advanced functions as well, such as control over permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the primary tool you will use to manage your files, it's important to check in advance what options it includes and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your web presence more challenging.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files which you upload to your shared hosting account with ease. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same way - select 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 sophisticated options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and instructional videos, you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will allow you to do just about anything you require. It is an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the standard features including copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus to access more advanced ones. With several mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to modify the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. Also, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you could just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
