Learn what a File Manager is and the way it differs from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that enables you to control the files in a hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager software tool supports a basic set of functions regardless of the hosting CP it's part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or entire folders along with all of the info in them, for example. Depending on the specific CP, other features could be supported also, including changing file permissions, handling archives or modifying the content of a specific file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you can easily manage your files along with your presence online as a whole, while a hard-to-use one can make handling your content irritating, specifically if you have not employed this kind of a tool before.
File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud website hosting
account effortlessly. You may move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You can easily upload content in the same way - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser in which the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder within your account, you could also access context menus with more complex 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 modify the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We've also provided help articles and video tutorials, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
