A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Certain Control Panels could provide more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much 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 which is difficult to use could make it more annoying and complicated for you to manage the site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your computer system 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 could also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also included help articles and educational videos, which you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do pretty much anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the regular functions including renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more sophisticated ones. With several clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. What's more, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content given that you can simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
