Discover more about the attributes of a File Manager within a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that allows you to control the files in a hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager tool supports a standard set of capabilities whatever the Internet hosting CP it's a part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or whole folders along with all the data inside them, for instance. Based on the specific CP, other capabilities can be supported too, like changing file permissions, managing archives or editing the content of a particular file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you may very easily control your files along with your online presence in general, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content annoying, specifically if you have not employed such a tool before.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all of the files 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 upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and instructional videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you host your sites inside a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you shall be able to benefit from our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is part of the in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel and is just as simple and user-friendly. It'll only take a click to create, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your convenience, you will be able to sort the content by name, type, size or last modified date. As the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you may quickly relocate any content within the account, including folders, and their structure will be preserved. If you would like to upload any content, you will no longer need an FTP program, as you could drag-and-drop the folders straight from your computer system. The File Manager also features more complex functions and you will be able to modify file permissions, to use archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, that may be accessed through right-click context menus.
