A File Manager 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 range of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use may make it more annoying and challenging for you to control your site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting from our company, you may take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It offers numerous features and even regular ones like copying or moving files could be accessed through right-click context menus, that'll make you feel like you’re working with an app on your desktop computer. If you move entire folders, their structure shall be kept unchanged, so you won't need to worry about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to a whole lot of other sophisticated functions as well, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be just a click away. What is more, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can also use 3 separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool allows you to do just about anything you want. It is an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the normal features like renaming, copying or deleting files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With a few mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to change the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Furthermore, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content because you can simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your pc directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content you upload.
