What is a File Manager? Just how much does it differ from its desktop equivalent?
A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may provide more complex capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to control your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use can make it more irritating and difficult for you to control the site content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all the files you upload to your shared web hosting
account without any difficulty. You'll be able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you could also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the CP – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We've also added help articles and instructional videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
