Find out more about the functions of a File Manager inside a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
All web hosting accounts are managed through a Control Panel and irrespective of the brand of the latter, you can always find a File Manager tool, which lets you browse the files you have uploaded inside the website hosting account and to complete simple operations with them, including moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more advanced features also, such as management of permissions and archives. Many Control Panels are easier to use than others and so are their File Manager sections. Considering that that is the main tool that you will employ to manage your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it includes and if it will suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and will make managing your online presence harder.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia CP, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting
account easily. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your 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 advanced options - you shall be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and video lessons, which you may access straight from the File Manager to get more information about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will enable you to do just about anything you require. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and besides the standard features such as copying, deleting or renaming files, you'll be able to use right-click menus so as to access more advanced ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you shall be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based application requires it or to modify the content of any file using plain text, code and WYSIWYG editors. Also, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content given that you can just drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer directly to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content which you upload.
