A File Manager software tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could provide you with more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use can make it more frustrating and hard for you to manage the website content, especially if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud hosting from our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that's a part of our Hepsia web hosting CP. It offers a lot of functions and even conventional ones like copying or moving files could be accessed through right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re working with an app on your computer system. If you relocate entire folders, their structure shall be kept unchanged, so you will not need to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to a lot of other innovative features also, so things like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be simply a mouse click away. What's more, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use three separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do pretty much anything you need. It is a part of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the regular functions such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With several clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based app needs it or to alter the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. What's more, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content as you can just drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your pc directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
