Discover more about the capabilities of a File Manager within a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is present in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can offer you more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using 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 control your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more frustrating and challenging for you to control your site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud web hosting
account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet 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 create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through 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've also provided help articles and video tutorials, that you can access from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do virtually anything you need. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and aside from the normal functions such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you can use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application needs it or to alter the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. What is more, you'll no longer require an FTP program to upload new content because you may simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your pc directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
