Learn what a File Manager is really and exactly how it differs from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more complex features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files can be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the simpler 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 difficult to use may make it more aggravating and complicated for you to handle your Internet site content, specifically if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux shared website hosting plan
through our company, you can take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that's part of our Hepsia hosting CP. It comes with many functions and even standard ones such as copying and moving files could be accessed using right-click context menus, that will make you feel as if you’re working with an app on your desktop computer. If you transfer entire folders, their structure shall be kept whole, so you won't have to be worried about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to lots of other advanced capabilities also, so things like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be simply a click away. What is more, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, because our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can also use three different file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a code editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
The File Manager tool, which is an essential part of our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, will give you total control over your data and will eradicate the need of using third-party software. If you'd like to upload a file to your semi-dedicated server
account, you will 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 shall also be able to relocate folders and files in the account just as easily and their structure will be kept unchanged. If you'd 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 by using a plain text or an HTML editor, you will only have to use the right-click, since you could access these functions using right-click context menus - you’ll feel like you’re working on your home computer. To make handling your content much easier, you will be able to organize it in ascending or descending order by last modified date, name or size.
