A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may offer you more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more annoying and tough for you to handle your website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud hosting account without any difficulty. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added help articles and instructional videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you host your websites within a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to use our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is a part of the in-house made Hepsia Control Panel and is just as simple and intuitive to use. It'll only take a click to create, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your comfort, you shall be able to sort the content by size, name, type or last modified date. As the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you could quickly relocate any content within the account, including folders, and their structure shall be preserved. If you would like to upload any content, you won't need an FTP program, since you could drag-and-drop the folders straight from your computer system. The File Manager also includes more complex capabilities and you'll be able to modify file permissions, to use archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, that could be accessed through right-click context menus.
