A File Manager software tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide you with more advanced functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use could make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control your website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud hosting account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to benefit from our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is part of the in-house made Hepsia Control Panel and is just as easy and intuitive to use. It takes only a click to create, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your ease and comfort, you will be able to sort the content by type, name, size or last modified date. As the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you could quickly relocate any content within the account, including folders, and their structure will be preserved. If you'd like to upload any content, you'll not need an FTP program, as you can drag-and-drop the folders straight from your PC. The File Manager also comes with more advanced features and you will be able to modify file permissions, to work with archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, which can easily be accessed via right-click context menus.
