A File Manager tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide you with more advanced functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use can make it more frustrating and tough for you to handle your Internet site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting service from our company, you can take advantage of a sophisticated File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting Control Panel. It includes lots of functions and even conventional ones like copying or moving files could be accessed via right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re employing an application on your home PC. If you transfer entire folders, their structure shall be kept intact, so you will not need to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to loads of other advanced features also, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a mouse click away. What's more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, considering that our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use 3 different file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to benefit from our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is an important part of the custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel and is just as basic and intuitive to use. It will only take a click to create, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your comfort, you will be able to sort the content by name, type, size or last modified date. As the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you could quickly move any content within the account, including folders, and their structure shall be preserved. If you'd like to upload any content, you'll not need an FTP program, since you can drag-and-drop the folders straight from your PC. The File Manager also includes more complex features and you'll be able to alter file permissions, to use archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, which may be accessed via right-click context menus.
