Determine what a File Manager is really and exactly how it is different from its desktop counterpart.
A File Manager tool is present in all hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it's used to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels could offer you more advanced features too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Even though files could be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is tough to use could make it more frustrating and hard for you to control the site content, particularly if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Web Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will enable you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud web hosting
account with ease. You are able to move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick 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 inside your account, you could also access context menus with more advanced options - you'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also provided help articles and video lessons, which you may access right from the File Manager to learn more about its functions.
