A File Manager software tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide you with more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use could make it more frustrating and challenging for you to manage your website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Hosting

When you order a Linux hosting plan from our company, you may take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, that is part of our Hepsia hosting CP. It offers a lot of functions and even conventional ones such as copying and moving files can be accessed from right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re working with an application on your home PC. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you won't need to worry about scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to a lot of other advanced functions also, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be simply a click away. Also, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use three different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated, although intuitive File Manager will give you complete control over your content and you will not have any challenges managing the folders and files that you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used a website hosting service before. The options it's giving you are only several clicks away, even the more complex ones including setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you shall feel like you’re working on your desktop computer. Additionally, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both inside the account and from your PC. With the latter alternative, you can upload content directly, which takes away the need for an FTP client.
