A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could offer more complex capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier 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 that's tough to use could make it more aggravating and tough for you to handle your website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your hosting account easily. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose 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 in your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and video tutorials, which you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do pretty much anything you need. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the standard functions including renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus to access more sophisticated ones. With a few clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to modify the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. What's more, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you could just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your pc straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
