Discover more about the attributes of a File Manager within an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can provide more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is difficult to use may make it more irritating and complicated for you to handle your website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
When you buy a Linux shared plan
from our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia web hosting CP. It provides many functions and even standard ones like copying and moving files may be accessed using right-click context menus, that will make you feel like you’re working with an application on your home computer. If you move entire folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you will not have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to a lot of other sophisticated functions also, so stuff like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be just a mouse click away. What is more, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You can even use 3 separate file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our sophisticated, although user-friendly File Manager offers you full control over your content and you won't have any troubles managing the folders and files which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even though you may have never used a hosting service before. The options it is offering are just a few mouse clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones like setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, changing UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. Using right-click context menus, you will feel like you’re working on your own computer system. Additionally, 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 can upload content directly, which eliminates the need for an FTP client.
