Determine what a File Manager is really and just how it is different from its desktop equivalent.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files in an Internet hosting account as a substitute for a third-party FTP program. Each and every File Manager software tool supports a basic set of functions no matter the Internet hosting CP it is part of - renaming, moving and deleting files or whole folders along with all of the information inside them, for example. Depending on the particular Control Panel, other features may be supported as well, including changing file permissions, handling archives or editing the content of a specific file. With an easy-to-use File Manager, you can comfortably control your files along with your presence online in general, while a hard-to-use one can make managing your content frustrating, especially if you have not employed this type of a tool before.
File Manager in Hosting
The feature-rich File Manager which comes with our hosting
plans shall make controlling your web content as simple as handling files on your desktop computer or laptop. You shall be able to drag-and-drop folders and files not only inside the account, but also straight from your personal computer, so you shall no longer need an FTP client to upload data. Furthermore, the folder structure will be maintained, so files from separate folders will not get mixed. You may also use right-click context menus and access different functions. You shall be able to set up and extract archives, to set up password-protected areas and more. If you want to change files, you can easily do that through several different editors - a plain text editor, a code editor and a WYSIWYG editor, so you can opt for the one that you need and feel most comfortable working with.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will permit you to do pretty much anything you want. It's part of the Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all semi-dedicated server
accounts and aside from the standard functions like renaming, copying or deleting files, you can use right-click menus so as to access more sophisticated ones. With a couple of mouse clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder in the account, to edit the UNIX permissions if a script-based application requires it or to modify the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. Furthermore, you shall no longer require an FTP program to upload new content since you could simply drag-and-drop files and entire folders from your laptop or computer directly to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, preserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
