A File Manager tool is found in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer you more advanced capabilities too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed far more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use can make it more aggravating and hard for you to manage your Internet site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, allows you to administer all the files you upload to your shared website hosting account effortlessly. 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 manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could 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 modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also provided help articles and instructional videos, that you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
