Learn what a File Manager is really and exactly how it differs from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files inside a website hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager software tool supports a basic set of features no matter the Internet hosting Control Panel it's part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or whole folders along with all of the information inside them, for example. Depending on the particular Control Panel, other features may be supported as well, including changing file permissions, handling archives or changing the content of a given file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you may very easily handle your files as well as your presence online as a whole, while a hard-to-use one could make managing your content aggravating, particularly if you have not used this type of a tool before.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files which you upload to your cloud web hosting
account without any difficulty. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your personal computer and drag it to your browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you can also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, which you may access straight from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
