A File Manager software tool is found in all website hosting Control Panels. As the name suggests, it's employed to control the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of primary capabilities - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. A few Control Panels could offer you more advanced features also - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files can be uploaded and downloaded through an FTP client, the File Manager is used way more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it shall be for you to manage your online presence in general. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use may make it more aggravating and complicated for you to manage the website content, particularly if you don't have previous experience.

File Manager in Cloud Hosting

The File Manager tool, that is a part of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, will allow you to administer all the files that you upload to your cloud hosting account with ease. You are able to move files and entire folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You could upload content in the same manner - choose 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'll be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions via a web interface or to modify the content with numerous editors without ever leaving the CP – a plain text editor, a code editor or an HTML editor. We have also included help articles and video tutorials, which you can access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
