What precisely is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop alternative?
A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to control the files inside a hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager tool supports a basic set of capabilities no matter the web hosting CP it is a part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or entire folders along with all the data in them, for example. Depending on the specific Control Panel, other functions can be supported as well, including changing file permissions, handling archives or editing the content of a given file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you may very easily manage your files along with your web presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content irritating, particularly if you have not used this type of a tool before.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files you upload to your cloud website hosting
account without any difficulty. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and video lessons, which you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia hosting CP, shall give you full control over your content and will take away the need of employing third-party apps. If you wish 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 will not have to employ an FTP client anymore. You will also be able to relocate files and folders in the account just as easily and their structure will be kept undamaged. If you would like to change the permissions of any file, to set up a password-protected area for a domain or a subdomain or to edit a file using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only have to use the right-click, since you can access all these features through right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your home PC. To make managing your content that much easier, you shall be able to sort it in ascending or descending order by size, name or last modified date.
