A File Manager tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may provide more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via 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 control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control your site content, especially if you lack previous experience.

If you relocate whole 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 loads of other advanced capabilities also, so stuff like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a mouse click away. What is more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, because our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use three different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool allows you to do practically anything you need. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and besides the standard features including renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more complex ones.
