A File Manager is a web-based interface that allows you to control the files in a web hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every single File Manager software tool supports a fundamental set of features whatever the web hosting Control Panel it is part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or whole folders along with all of the content in them, for example. With regard to the specific Control Panel, other features could be supported as well, including changing file permissions, handling archives or changing the content of a specific file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you could very easily control your files and your world-wide web presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one could make managing your content annoying, specifically if you haven't used such a tool before.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files that you upload to your shared hosting account easily. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and video lessons, which you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use File Manager offers you 100 % control over your content and you will not have any troubles handling the folders and files you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server account, even when you have never used a web hosting service before. The options it is providing are just a few mouse clicks away, even the more advanced ones such as setting up a password-protected folder, creating 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'll feel like you’re working on your desktop computer. Additionally, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your computer. With the latter alternative, you could upload content directly, which takes away the need for any FTP client.
