A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer you more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use could make it more irritating and difficult for you to handle the site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all of the files which you upload to your cloud website hosting account effortlessly. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web 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'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also added help articles and educational videos, that you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our highly developed, albeit easy-to-use File Manager will give you total control over your content and you'll not have any challenges handling the files and folders you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it is offering are no more than a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your home computer. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you could upload content directly, which eradicates the need for any FTP client.
