A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use can make it more aggravating and challenging for you to manage your Internet site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a Linux shared web hosting plan from our company, you could take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, that's part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting Control Panel. It includes lots of features and even traditional ones like copying and moving files may be accessed via right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re working with an application on your computer system. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept intact, so you shall not have to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to a whole lot of other sophisticated features too, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be just a click away. What is more, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, because our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can also use three separate file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our highly developed, albeit easy-to-work with File Manager will give you complete control over your content and you will not have any problems handling the files and folders you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it's supplying are just several mouse clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones like creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you shall feel just as if you’re working on your home computer. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your laptop or computer. With the latter option, you can easily upload content directly, which eradicates the need for any FTP client.
