A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can provide you with more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more irritating and challenging for you to manage the website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files you upload to your web hosting account without any difficulty. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also included help articles and video tutorials, that you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, will give you total control over your content and will remove the need of using third-party applications. If you want to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you'll simply have to drag-and-drop it, since the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You'll also be able to move folders and files in the account just as easily and their structure will be kept the same. If you want to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to edit a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only need to use the right-click, since you can access all of these features from right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your computer. To make managing your content even easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
