All hosting accounts are managed using a Control Panel and whatever the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files that you've uploaded inside the hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there could be more advanced features as well, including control over permissions and archives. Some Control Panels are easier to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the primary tool that you'll employ to handle your files, it is critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will work for you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and could make managing your web presence more challenging.

File Manager in Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your website hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and educational videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Via right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your desktop computer. What's more, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter alternative, you may upload content directly, which eliminates the need for any FTP client.
