Find out more about the attributes of a File Manager inside a web hosting control panel and why you will need one.
A File Manager software tool is found in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name shows, it is used to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a range of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels may offer more advanced capabilities also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Although files may be uploaded and downloaded with an FTP client, the File Manager is employed a lot more often, so the easier to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that is hard to use can make it more annoying and difficult for you to handle your website content, particularly if you do not have previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
When you buy a Linux cloud package
through our company, you can take advantage of an advanced File Manager tool, that's a part of our Hepsia website hosting hosting Control Panel. It includes numerous functions and even regular ones like copying or moving files can be accessed from right-click context menus, which will make you feel like you’re employing an application on your home computer. If you move whole folders, their structure shall be kept intact, so you won't need to concern yourself with scrambled files. The context menus will give you access to loads of other sophisticated features as well, so things like creating an archive of a whole folder or creating a password-protected area will be only a click away. Furthermore, you'll not need a third-party FTP program to upload content, because our File Manager supports drag & drop and folder uploads. You can even use three separate file editors – a plain text editor, a WYSIWYG editor and a code editor.
