A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to manage the files inside a web hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager software tool supports a basic set of functions regardless of the Internet hosting CP it is part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or whole folders along with all the content in them, for example. Depending on the specific CP, other functions could be supported as well, like changing file permissions, working with archives or editing the content of a given file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you can very easily control your files and your online presence in general, while a hard-to-use one could make handling your content irritating, particularly if you haven't employed this type of a tool before.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house built Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud web hosting account easily. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and instructional videos, you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do practically anything you require. It's a part of the Hepsia CP, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the regular features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you will be able to use right-click menus so as to access more sophisticated ones. With a few mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to alter the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Also, you will no longer need an FTP program to upload new content as you could just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
