A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to control the files in a website hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager software tool supports a basic set of capabilities no matter the web hosting CP it's a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all of the data inside them, for example. In accordance with the specific Control Panel, other features can be supported as well, such as changing file permissions, handling archives or modifying the content of a particular file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you can very easily handle your files as well as your world-wide web presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content irritating, particularly if you have not used this type of a tool before.

File Manager in Shared Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser where 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 CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and educational videos, you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our File Manager tool will allow you to do practically anything you require. It is an element of the Hepsia CP, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the regular features like renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With several clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app requires it or to change the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Furthermore, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content given that you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your pc straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
