A File Manager software tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels can offer you more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use could make it more annoying and complicated for you to handle the site content, especially if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your cloud website hosting account with ease. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may 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 change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and instructional videos, you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is an integral part of our custom Hepsia website hosting CP, shall give you full control over your web content and will remove the need of using third-party applications. If you would like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server account, you'll only have to drag-and-drop it, due to the fact that the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not have to use an FTP client anymore. You'll also be able to relocate files and folders inside your account just as fast and their structure will be kept the same. If you'd like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain name or a subdomain or to edit a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only have to use the right-click, since you could access all of these functions via right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your personal computer. To make handling your content much easier, you will be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, size or name.
