All hosting accounts are handled via a CP and regardless of the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files that you've uploaded in the hosting account and to execute simple operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more complex features as well, like management of permissions and archives. Several Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As this is the main tool you shall employ to manage your files, it is essential to check in advance what options it offers and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your online presence more complicated.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files which you upload to your shared hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system 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 will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and educational videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our sophisticated, albeit easy-to-work with File Manager offers you complete control over your content and you won't have any issues managing the files and folders which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is providing are no more than a few 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 inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your home computer system. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your computer. With the latter alternative, you can upload content directly, which eliminates the need for any FTP client.
