A File Manager tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may provide you with more complex capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use may make it more aggravating and tough for you to control your website content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your website hosting
account with ease. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer 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 could also access context menus with more advanced options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with numerous 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, which you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia hosting CP, shall give you 100 % control over your content and will remove the need of using third-party apps. If you wish to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you shall only need to drag-and-drop it, since the File Manager supports uploads, so you shall not need to employ an FTP client anymore. You shall also be able to transfer files and folders in the account just as easily and their structure shall be kept undamaged. If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to modify a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only need to use the right-click, since you could access all of these features using right-click context menus - you’ll feel as if you’re working on your computer system. To make managing your content so much easier, you'll be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
