A File Manager tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may offer you more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more irritating and difficult for you to manage your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your cloud web hosting account with ease. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will enable you to do practically anything you require.

With a couple of mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to alter the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code.

The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content which you upload.
