A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to manage the files in a hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Each and every File Manager tool supports a basic set of capabilities whatever the web hosting CP it's a part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or whole folders along with all the information inside them, for instance. Depending on the specific CP, other features can be supported also, like changing file permissions, working with archives or modifying the content of a specific file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you may conveniently handle your files and your web presence as a whole, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content frustrating, particularly if you haven't employed such a tool before.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud hosting account effortlessly. You can move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and video lessons, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool allows you to do practically anything you need. It's an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the standard features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you shall be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With a couple of clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to modify the UNIX permissions in case a script-based application needs it or to alter the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. What is more, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you may just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your pc straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
