A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it is used to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels can provide you with more complex features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use can make it more aggravating and challenging for you to handle the site content, specifically if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, allows you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud web hosting
account without any difficulty. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can upload content in the same way - pick a file/folder on your computer 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 can also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to edit the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also added help articles and educational videos, which you can access from the File Manager to learn more about its capabilities.
