Find out more about the functions of a File Manager within a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels may provide you with more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use could make it more irritating and challenging for you to control your site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud web hosting
account easily. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your 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 sophisticated options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also provided help articles and educational videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced, though easy-to-work with File Manager offers you total control over your content and you won't have any challenges handling the folders and files that you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even when you have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it is providing are just several mouse clicks away, even the more complex ones like setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your desktop computer. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you can easily upload content directly, which takes away the need for an FTP client.
