A File Manager software tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a number of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may provide you with more advanced functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is difficult to use may make it more aggravating and hard for you to control the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud hosting through our company, you could take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It comes with many functions and even standard ones such as copying or moving files could be accessed from right-click context menus, that'll make you feel as if you’re employing an application on your home computer. If you move whole folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you won't need to be concerned about scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to many other sophisticated functions too, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area shall be just a click away. Also, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You could also use 3 separate file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.

File Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our File Manager tool allows you to do just about anything you want. It's an element of the Hepsia CP, included with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the regular features such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you will be able to use right-click menus to access more sophisticated ones.
