A File Manager software tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could offer more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files could be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's not easy to use could make it more irritating and tough for you to handle your Internet site content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Web Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all of the files that you upload to your web hosting account easily. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may 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 alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify 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 from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
