A File Manager tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could offer more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use could make it more aggravating and difficult for you to manage the site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

If you order a Linux web hosting from our company, you can take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It offers many functions and even traditional ones such as copying or moving files may be accessed via right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re using an app on your home PC. If you transfer entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you shall not need to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a lot of other advanced functions too, so things such as creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be simply a click away. Also, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, considering that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use 3 different file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our highly developed, though easy-to-work with File Manager will give you total control over your content and you won't have any issues handling the folders and files you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it is providing are just a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more complex ones like creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel like you’re working on your own computer system. Additionally, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you are able to upload content directly, which removes the need for any FTP client.
