What precisely is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
All hosting accounts are handled from a CP and whatever the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which lets you look at the files which you have uploaded inside the Internet hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there could be more complex functions as well, including management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are simpler to work with compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Since this is the main tool that you will employ to handle your files, it is important to check in advance what options it includes and if it will appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your presence online more challenging.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your cloud website hosting
account effortlessly. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and instructional videos, which you may access right from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you host your websites inside a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you'll be able to take advantage of our feature-rich File Manager. The tool is an important part of the in-house built Hepsia Control Panel and is just as simple and intuitive to use. It'll only take a click to set up, rename or delete a file or a folder in your account and for your comfort and ease, you will be able to sort the content by size, name, type or last modified date. As the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you could quickly transfer any content within the account, including folders, and their structure shall be preserved. If you want to upload any content, you will not need an FTP program, since you may drag-and-drop the folders right from your personal computer. The File Manager also includes more advanced features and you'll be able to change file permissions, to use archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, which may be accessed via right-click context menus.
