A File Manager software tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels can offer you more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use could make it more irritating and complicated for you to manage your website content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
When you buy a Linux shared website hosting service from our company, you may take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, which is part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It provides a lot of capabilities and even conventional ones such as copying or moving files may be accessed from right-click context menus, that will make you feel as if you’re working with an app on your desktop computer. If you move whole folders, their structure shall be kept intact, so you will not have to worry about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to loads of other advanced functions as well, so things such as creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a click away. Also, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use three different file editors – a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
When 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 a part of the in-house made Hepsia Control Panel and is just as basic and intuitive to use. It'll only take a click to create, rename or delete a file or a folder inside your account and for your ease and comfort, you'll be able to sort the content by size, name, type or last modified date. Since the File Manager supports drag-and-drop actions, you could quickly transfer any content within the account, including folders, and their structure will be preserved. If you'd like to upload any content, you won't need an FTP program, due to the fact that you could drag-and-drop the folders straight from your PC. The File Manager also comes with more complex capabilities and you'll be able to alter file permissions, to use archives and to edit files with plain text and HTML editors, which may be accessed through right-click context menus.
