A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more frustrating and hard for you to handle your website content, especially if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Web Hosting
Our web hosting accounts are handled through the sophisticated Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with a feature-rich File Manager tool. Even if you have never had an Internet hosting account before, you'll be able to control your web content with no trouble, simply because the File Manager is very intuitive to use. It takes just a couple of clicks to set up, rename or delete a file, while moving a file or a whole folder is as basic as dragging-and-dropping it to the desired location. You'll be able to upload data in the exact same way - just choose the files on your computer and drag them to your web browser, then drop them in the File Manager, that shall do the rest. Handy right-click menus will allow you to pack/unpack archives, to modify file permissions, to create password-protected areas or to modify a file with simple and advanced editors.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do virtually anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the regular functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you shall be able to use right-click menus to access more advanced ones. With a couple of clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to change the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. In addition, you'll no longer need an FTP program to upload new content because you could just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
