A File Manager tool is found in all Internet hosting Control Panels. As the name implies, it's employed to command the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of basic features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels can provide more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to handle your presence online as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's hard to use can make it more frustrating and difficult for you to control your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, that's part of our custom Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all of the files which you upload to your cloud hosting account with ease. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You may upload content in the same way - select a file/folder on your computer and drag it to your web 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 sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also provided help articles and video lessons, which you may access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
