What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
All website hosting accounts are managed through a CP and no matter the type of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which allows you to look into the files that you've uploaded inside the web hosting account and to execute basic operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the particular tool, there may be more advanced functions too, like management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since that's the primary tool you will employ to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it comes with and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more complicated.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting
account with ease. You could 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 personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do just about anything you require. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and besides the regular features like renaming, copying or deleting files, you shall be able to use right-click menus so as to access more complex ones. With several clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to change the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to edit the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you'll no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content you upload.
