A File Manager tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more advanced features 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 a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more aggravating and tough for you to control the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files which you upload to your hosting
account effortlessly. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is an integral part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, will give you 100 % control over your web content and will take away the need of employing third-party apps. If you'd like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you'll only have to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you will not have to use an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to relocate files and folders inside your account just as easily and their structure shall be kept undamaged. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to edit a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only have to use the right-click, considering that you may access these features from right-click context menus - you’ll feel as though you’re working on your computer system. To make managing your content that much easier, you shall be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
