A File Manager tool is available in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may offer you more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more frustrating and difficult for you to manage the site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a Linux shared service through our company, you could take advantage of a sophisticated File Manager tool, that is a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It includes lots of capabilities and even conventional ones like copying and moving files may be accessed through right-click context menus, which will make you feel as if you’re working with an application on your computer system. If you move whole folders, their structure shall be kept whole, so you will not have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to loads of other advanced features as well, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be only a click away. Also, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use 3 separate file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced, albeit easy-to-use File Manager will give you full control over your content and you'll not have any issues managing the files and folders you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even if you have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it's giving you are no more than a couple of mouse clicks away, even the more advanced ones including creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Through right-click context menus, you will feel like you’re working on your home computer system. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both inside the account and from your laptop or computer. With the latter option, you can upload content directly, which takes away the need for an FTP client.
