Learn what a File Manager is really and just how it is different from its desktop equivalent.
A File Manager software tool is present in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it is employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could provide you with more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is used far more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use could make it more irritating and tough for you to handle your website content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files which you upload to your shared hosting
account effortlessly. 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 personal computer and drag it to your web browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you may also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also provided help articles and educational videos, you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
