A File Manager software tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can provide you with more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use can make it more annoying and challenging for you to manage your website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager that comes with our cloud hosting plans will make controlling your information as easy as handling files on your personal computer or laptop. You will be able to drag-and-drop files and folders not only in the account, but also straight from your computer, so you shall no longer require an FTP client to upload data. What is more, the folder structure will be preserved, so files from separate folders will not get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access various functions. You shall be able to set up and extract archives, to create password-protected areas and much more. If you would like to edit files, you can do that through a number of different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you could opt for the one that you need and feel most at ease working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do practically anything you require. It is a part of the Hepsia CP, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and apart from the normal features such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus to access more complex ones. With a few clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based application needs it or to change the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. What's more, you'll no longer need an FTP program to upload new content since you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, keeping the folder structure of the content that you upload.
