What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager is a web-based interface that allows you to control the files in a website hosting account as a substitute for a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager software tool supports a fundamental set of features no matter the website hosting Control Panel it's part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or whole folders along with all of the content inside them, for instance. With regard to the particular CP, other functions can be supported also, like changing file permissions, working with archives or changing the content of a specific file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you can very easily manage your files and your world-wide web presence in general, while a hard-to-use one can make controlling your content aggravating, particularly if you have not employed this sort of a tool before.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared hosting
account easily. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - pick 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'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added help articles and video tutorials, which you can access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our sophisticated, though easy-to-work with File Manager will provide you with full control over your content and you will not have any troubles managing the files and folders which you create or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even when you have never used a website hosting service before. The options it is offering are only a few clicks away, even the more advanced ones like setting up a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Through right-click context menus, you'll feel just as if you’re working on your home computer. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter alternative, you are able to upload content directly, which eliminates the need for an FTP client.
