A File Manager tool is available in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to command the files inside an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A number of Control Panels can offer you more complex functions too - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded using an FTP client, the File Manager is employed much more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it will be for you to control your presence online in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager which is not easy to use could make it more frustrating and difficult for you to manage the website content, specifically if you lack previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Website Hosting

The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house made Hepsia CP, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud website hosting account easily. You could move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them inside the account. You could upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you can also access context menus with more sophisticated options - you will be able to create or to unpack an archive, to set up a password-protected area, to change the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a number of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We've also included help articles and video tutorials, which you can access straight from the File Manager to find out more about its capabilities.

In addition, you'll no longer need an FTP program to upload new content given that you could simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your pc straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, conserving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
