What precisely is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager software tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may offer you more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is not easy to use can make it more aggravating and difficult for you to handle the website content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all of the files you upload to your shared website hosting
account easily. You may 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 Internet 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 complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also provided help articles and educational videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia web hosting CP, shall give you 100 % control over your data and will take away the need of using third-party software. If you'd like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you'll only have to drag-and-drop it, because the File Manager supports uploads, so you'll not have to employ an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to transfer files and folders within the account just as easily and their structure shall be kept unchanged. If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to create a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to modify a file with a plain text or an HTML editor, you'll only need to use the right-click, given that you may access all of these features via right-click context menus - you’ll feel as if you’re working on your home computer. To make managing your content a whole lot easier, you'll be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
