A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can provide more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use could make it more irritating and hard for you to manage your Internet site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all of the files you upload to your hosting account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose 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 could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will 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 modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and video tutorials, which you may access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our advanced, although easy-to-work with File Manager will give you total control over your content and you'll not have any issues handling the files and folders that you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even though you may have never used a website hosting service before. The options it's providing are no more than several mouse clicks away, even the more complex ones such as creating a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel like you’re working on your computer. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both within the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you could upload content directly, which eradicates the need for an FTP client.
