All website hosting accounts are handled using a Control Panel and no matter the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to carry out simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Based on the particular tool, there could be more advanced functions too, including control over permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the primary tool that you will employ to handle your files, it's critical to check in advance what options it comes with and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager may be a burden and will make managing your presence online more complicated.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting account effortlessly. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer 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 can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also included help articles and educational videos, that you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file by using a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only have to use the right-click, because you could access all of these functions through right-click context menus - you’ll feel as if you’re working on your computer system. To make managing your content much easier, you'll be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by name, size or last modified date.
