Discover more about the features of a File Manager inside a hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is employed way more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use may make it more annoying and difficult for you to manage the website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our custom Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all of the files that you upload to your cloud website hosting
account easily. You'll be able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you may also access context menus with more complex options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and instructional videos, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
