A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use could make it more annoying and tough for you to control your website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our custom Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared web hosting
account with ease. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC 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 could also access context menus with more advanced options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, that you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your sites within a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will be able to benefit from our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is part of the in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and is just as simple and user-friendly.

If you want to upload any content, you will no longer need an FTP program, as you could drag-and-drop the folders straight from your PC. The File Manager also includes more complex features and you shall be able to alter file permissions, to use archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, that could be accessed through right-click context menus.
