Discover more about the attributes of a File Manager within an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of standard capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels could offer more complex functions also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use could make it more annoying and challenging for you to control your site content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that is part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud web hosting
account without any difficulty. You could move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You can easily upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your computer system and drag it to your web browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder in your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also added help articles and educational videos, which you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its features.
