All web hosting accounts are handled through a Control Panel and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files you have uploaded in the hosting account and to perform basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. Based on the specific tool, there may be more advanced functions as well, like management of permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that is the main tool you'll use to manage your files, it's important to check in advance what options it includes and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your presence online harder.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your cloud hosting account easily. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, which you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool will allow you to do virtually anything you need. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the standard functions like copying, deleting or renaming files, you can use right-click menus in order to access more advanced ones. With a couple of clicks, you will be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application needs it or to modify the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. In addition, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content because you can simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
