A File Manager software tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may provide more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use could make it more annoying and complicated for you to control your site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all of the files that you upload to your cloud web hosting account easily. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you will 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 change the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and video tutorials, you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated, though easy-to-use File Manager offers you 100 % control over your content and you won't have any difficulties handling the folders and files you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used a hosting service before. The options it is offering are no more than a couple of clicks away, even the more complex ones like setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you shall feel like you’re working on your home computer system. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you can easily upload content directly, which removes the need for any FTP client.
