Determine what a File Manager is actually and precisely how it is different from its desktop counterpart.
All hosting accounts are managed using a CP and no matter the brand of the latter, there is always a File Manager tool, which enables you to browse the files which you have uploaded in the web hosting account and to perform simple operations with them, for example moving, copying or deleting. Depending on the specific tool, there can be more advanced functions too, like management of permissions and archives. Certain Control Panels are easier to work with compared to others and so are their File Manager sections. As that's the primary tool that you'll employ to handle your files, it's essential to check in advance what options it provides and if it shall appeal to you, because a hard-to-use File Manager could be a burden and could make managing your web presence more difficult.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all of the files that you upload to your shared hosting
account with ease. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may 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 may also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up 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 numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our innovative, although intuitive File Manager will give you 100 % control over your content and you will not have any issues managing the folders and files which you set up or upload to your semi-dedicated server
account, even when you have never used a hosting service before. The options it's providing are only a few clicks away, even the more advanced ones such as creating a password-protected folder, creating or unpacking an archive, adjusting UNIX permissions or opening a file inside a plain text or an HTML editor. From right-click context menus, you will feel just as if you’re working on your desktop computer. Furthermore, the File Manager supports dragging-and-dropping of files and whole folders - both in the account and from your notebook or computer. With the latter option, you could upload content directly, which eliminates the need for any FTP client.
