A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use can make it more irritating and complicated for you to handle your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared web hosting account without any difficulty. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through 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 provided help articles and video tutorials, which you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool allows you to do virtually anything you want. It's an element of the Hepsia CP, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the regular features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With several clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content given that you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
