All website hosting accounts are handled from a Control Panel and irrespective of the type of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which allows you to browse the files that you have uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, such as moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there can be more complex functions as well, including management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that this is the primary tool you'll employ to control your files, it's important to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and will make managing your web presence more difficult.

File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files which you upload to your cloud web hosting account easily. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick 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 in your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its features.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our sophisticated, albeit intuitive File Manager will give you full control over your content and you will not have any problems managing the files and folders that you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it is supplying are just a few clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones including 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. Via right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your desktop computer. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both inside the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter option, you may upload content directly, which eliminates the need for any FTP client.
