A File Manager tool is present in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files inside an account and all File Managers support a range of primary features - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Several Control Panels could offer more complex functions as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Though files may be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it will be for you to manage your online presence in its entirety. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is hard to use could make it more frustrating and difficult for you to handle the website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Website Hosting

When you get a Linux website hosting package through our company, you can take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that is part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It comes with a lot of capabilities and even regular ones such as copying or moving files may be accessed from right-click context menus, that will make you feel as if you’re employing an app on your home PC. If you relocate entire folders, their structure will be kept intact, so you will not have to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus shall give you access to lots of other innovative features too, so stuff like creating an archive of an entire folder or creating a password-protected area will be merely a click away. What is more, you will not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, as our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use 3 separate file editors – a WYSIWYG editor, a plain text editor and a code editor.
