Determine what a File Manager is and exactly how it is different from its pc counterpart.
A File Manager is a web-based interface that permits you to control the files in a web hosting account as an alternative to a third-party FTP program. Every File Manager tool supports a fundamental set of functions regardless of the hosting CP it is a part of - renaming, deleting and moving files or entire folders along with all of the information inside them, for instance. In accordance with the specific Control Panel, other capabilities can be supported also, including changing file permissions, managing archives or changing the content of a particular file. Via an easy-to-use File Manager, you could effortlessly handle your files as well as your web presence in general, while a hard-to-use one could make handling your content annoying, particularly if you have not employed such a tool before.
File Manager in Shared Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is part of our in-house developed Hepsia CP, will permit you to administer all the files you upload to your shared hosting
account easily. You can move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them in the account. You can upload content in the same manner - pick a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser in which 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 set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to modify the UNIX permissions through a web interface or to change the content with a variety of editors without ever leaving the CP – an HTML editor, a plain text editor or a code editor. We have also provided help articles and video tutorials, you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its functions.
