Learn more about the functions of a File Manager within an website hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a number of basic capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels may offer you more advanced features as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files could be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your presence online altogether. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use may make it more frustrating and challenging for you to manage your website content, especially if you don't have previous experience.
File Manager in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting plan
from our company, you could take advantage of a modern File Manager tool, which is a part of our Hepsia web hosting CP. It provides a lot of capabilities and even conventional ones such as copying and moving files may be accessed from right-click context menus, which will make you feel like you’re working with an app on your home computer. If you transfer entire folders, their structure will be kept whole, so you will not have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will provide you with access to lots of other innovative functions too, so stuff like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be simply a mouse click away. What's more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, due to the fact that our File Manager supports drag-and-drop file and folder uploads. You may also use three different file editors – a code editor, a plain text editor and a WYSIWYG editor.
