Discover more about the attributes of a File Manager inside a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files in a website hosting account instead of a third-party FTP program. Each File Manager software tool supports a standard set of capabilities no matter the hosting CP it is a part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or entire folders along with all the information in them, for example. With regard to the specific CP, other features could be supported too, such as changing file permissions, handling archives or modifying the content of a specific file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you can very easily handle your files as well as your web presence in general, while a hard-to-use one could make managing your content annoying, especially if you have not used this kind of a tool before.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared plan
from our company, you could take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting CP. It offers a lot of capabilities and even standard ones like copying and moving files can be accessed from right-click context menus, that'll make you feel as if you’re employing an app on your computer system. If you move whole folders, their structure will be kept unchanged, so you will not have to worry about scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to a lot of other advanced capabilities as well, so things such as creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area shall be only a click away. What's more, you won't need a third-party FTP program to upload content, since our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You may also use 3 different file editors – a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do just about anything you want. It is an element of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and aside from the normal features such as renaming, copying or deleting files, you'll be able to use right-click menus in order to access more sophisticated ones. With a few mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to alter the content of any file using plain text, WYSIWYG editors and code. Furthermore, you shall no longer need an FTP program to upload new content given that you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your computer straight to the File Manager. The tool will do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content you upload.
