What precisely is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer you more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files can be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's tough to use may make it more aggravating and tough for you to handle your Internet site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files you upload to your shared web hosting
account with ease. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system 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 can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change 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 added help articles and instructional videos, you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool allows you to do just about anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and besides the normal functions such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus so as to access more sophisticated ones. With a few clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to change the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to edit the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Also, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you could just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
