A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to manage the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could provide you with more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use could make it more frustrating and complicated for you to control the site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
When you get a Linux shared hosting package through our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that's part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It offers a lot of features and even standard ones like copying and moving files could be accessed using right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re employing an application on your home computer. If you relocate whole folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you won't have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to a whole lot of other advanced features too, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be simply a mouse click away. What's more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use 3 different file editors – a code editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a plain text editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool allows you to do virtually anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts and aside from the regular functions such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you'll be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With several clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based app requires it or to change the content of any file using WYSIWYG editors, plain text and code. Additionally, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you could simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content that you upload.
