Discover more about the attributes of a File Manager within a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could provide you with more advanced functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more annoying and difficult for you to control the site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud web hosting
account with ease. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also provided help articles and video lessons, you can access from the File Manager to get more information about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated, although intuitive File Manager will give you full control over your content and you won't have any troubles managing the folders and files you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is offering are just a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more complex ones such as creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, modifying UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel as if you’re working on your computer. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both in the account and from your computer. With the latter option, you are able to upload content directly, which eliminates the need for an FTP client.
