Learn what a File Manager is and just how it is different from its desktop equivalent.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to manage the files inside a website hosting account in lieu of a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager software tool supports a fundamental set of functions no matter the Internet hosting CP it's a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all of the content inside them, for example. Based on the specific Control Panel, other features could be supported as well, such as changing file permissions, handling archives or modifying the content of a given file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you can effortlessly handle your files and your online presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content irritating, particularly if you have not employed such a tool before.
File Manager in Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files that you upload to your website hosting
account without any difficulty. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your 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 sophisticated options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also included help articles and educational videos, which you may access from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our highly developed, though intuitive File Manager offers you complete control over your content and you won't have any difficulties handling the files and folders which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even if you have never used a hosting service before. The options it is giving you are only several clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones including setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel just as if you’re working on your home computer. In addition, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your laptop or computer. With the latter alternative, you could upload content directly, which removes the need for an FTP client.
