Discover more about the functions of a File Manager within a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels may offer more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is tough to use may make it more aggravating and complicated for you to handle the website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your hosting
account without any difficulty. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your computer system 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 advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also included help articles and instructional videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to get more information about its capabilities.
