A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide you with more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use may make it more irritating and complicated for you to control your Internet site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all the files which you upload to your website hosting account easily. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with a variety of 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 lessons, which you may access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do just about anything you want. It is a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the standard functions including renaming, copying or deleting files, you'll be able to use right-click menus to access more advanced ones. With several mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit 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. Furthermore, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content given that you may just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
