What is a File Manager? How much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
All website hosting accounts are managed via a Control Panel and regardless of the brand of the latter, there's always a File Manager tool, which allows you to look at the files that you have uploaded in the website hosting account and to carry out basic operations with them, like moving, copying or deleting. With respect to the specific tool, there can be more complex functions as well, like control over permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to use compared with others and so are their File Manager sections. Due to the fact that that's the primary tool that you'll employ to control your files, it's important to check in advance what options it provides and if it'll suit your needs, because a hard-to-use File Manager can be a burden and could make managing your web presence harder.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud hosting
account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - select a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to create 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 a number of editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, which you can access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our advanced, although easy-to-use File Manager will give you complete control over your content and you'll not have any problems managing the files and folders which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even if you have never used an Internet hosting service before. The options it's offering are just a couple of clicks away, even the more sophisticated ones including setting up a password-protected folder, setting up or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file in a plain text or an HTML editor. Via right-click context menus, you will feel just as if you’re working on your desktop computer. Moreover, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and entire folders - both within the account and from your personal computer. With the latter alternative, you can upload content directly, which eradicates the need for an FTP client.
