A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use can make it more irritating and tough for you to handle the website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting account easily. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more advanced options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through 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've also added help articles and instructional videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our highly developed, albeit easy-to-use File Manager will provide you with total control over your content and you'll not have any problems managing the files and folders you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a web hosting service before. The options it is supplying are just a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more advanced ones including setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you will feel like you’re working on your computer. Also, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your laptop or computer. With the latter option, you could upload content directly, which eliminates the need for any FTP client.
