A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more frustrating and difficult for you to manage your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files that you upload to your cloud website hosting account with ease. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and video lessons, which you may access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do pretty much anything you require. It is part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the normal functions including renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With several clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to edit the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. Additionally, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content given that you may simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
